Trowel Occupations (Construction) L2 NVQ Diploma at Mpower Training Solutions

Course description

The construction world is changing, new regulations are in force that will mean that to work on site will mean that everyone working
onsite will have to achieve an NVQ level 2 and will also have to have a CSCS card as evidence that they have gained the qualification.

It is intended for those working within the bricklaying contracting companies who have the responsibility to be qualified to work onsite. The CAA have designed this course so that it caters for learners who have proven their background and their previous experience in the Bricklaying industry.

The entire process is designed to minimise the amount of time you will need to commit to gaining this qualification, we all know that
time away from work is money lost so we will guide you quickly and efficiently through the process.

The emphasis will be given to you as an experienced bricklayer to demonstrate your skills and your overall ability and knowledge. Our Assessors will gather the evidence of the work you produce once you are on the course but you must provide evidence of your ability and experience of the industry beforehand. This evidence that you provide will be in the form of a portfolio and this will be backed up by the completion of a practical tasks/assessment undertaken on site.

You will then be assessed onsite by one of our assessors on a number of arranged occasions. He will then sign off each part of the criteria that you
achieve in the workplace for the award of your NVQ Level 2.
