With highly experienced and qualified bricklayers able to command salaries of as much as £35,000 a year, it should be no great surprise to any informed observer that bricklaying courses – like those provided by our own trusted construction training centre here at YTA – remain in considerable demand.
However, if you are an experienced bricklayer but not a sufficiently qualified one to be able to attain the blue skilled worker CSCS card as an on-site bricklayer, what are your options for obtaining a suitable qualification in double-quick time?
There’s no need to worry, when you take advantage of the EWPA route
What do we mean when we use the acronym ‘EWPA’? We are, of course, referring to the Experienced Worker Practical Assessment, which is specifically designed to give a worker with at least five years behind them in a given trade, the opportunity to earn a relevant NVQ Level 2 qualification.
Unlike other bricklaying courses that we offer here at YTA, this route doesn’t necessitate you spending a week or even two weeks at our training centre. Instead, everything could be complete within a day, and the process is an easy enough one to understand.
This is a true fast-track NVQ assessment route, giving you the chance to demonstrate your skills and knowledge to an assessor through a combination of professional discussion, witness statements and the practical assessment.
If you do successfully complete the EWPA – and you will be informed at the end of the day whether this is the case – you will then be sent your certificate within 14 days, or even in as little as seven days. This, in turn, will enable you to apply for your blue skilled worker CSCS card, so that you can swiftly get on site.
Don’t wait any longer to upgrade your employability
Assessments at our centre can normally be booked and completed within two weeks of you getting in touch with us – so don’t hesitate and risk missing out on the opportunity to get back on site, earning a wage and progressing your career as a seasoned bricklayer.
Indeed, we can even help you to get back on site before you have got round to completing the NVQ; all that you have to do is pay your deposit, so that we can get you registered and send you a confirmation of this by email. Then, you’ll be able to apply for and gain a six-month temporary card that will give you the time required to undertake the EWPA.
