Our site carpentry EWPA option could give you a Level 2 qualification in next to no time
There are certain things that anyone who wishes to become a professional carpenter needs to possess; a sound knowledge of building and construction, considerable attention to detail, a good ability to work well with others, the ability to use, repair and maintain tools and machinery…One more thing that you will definitely require if you are to gain site work as a skilled worker, though, is the blue skilled worker CSCS card. And if you are to obtain that, you’ll need to have the right qualification under your belt. That qualification is an NVQ Level 2 in carpentry, and while various construction training providers up and down the UK give you the opportunity to earn this qualification, there are few that make it as pleasurable as we do here at YTA!
The renowned fast-track route for joiners with previous experience
‘EWPA’ is short for ‘Experienced Worker Practical Assessment’. The purpose of this particular NVQ route is to enable someone whois already experienced in their chosen trade to achieve a Level 2 qualification much more quickly than would be the case if they were completely ‘starting afresh’ with their training.
In keeping with our reputation as one of the UK’s premier construction training providers, YTA offers EWPA fast-track options to those wishing to earn qualifications in not only site carpentry, but also wall and floor tiling, bricklaying and plastering. Focusing specifically on the site carpentry EWPA route, though, as long as you have five or more years’ joinery experience and both you and our NVQ assessor are confident about your chances of passing, you will be entitled to book a one or two-day assessment with us. This time you spend at our training centre will allow us to evaluate your skills through a combination of professional discussion, witness testimonies and the practical assessment.
If you are happy to arrive at our premises for 7:30am, we will be able to complete the entire NVQ carpentry assessment for you in one day. When the day concludes, the assessor will inform you whether or not you have achieved, and if you have, your certificate will be sent to you within 14 days.
How do we assess during COVID-19 and keep social distancing
We have a very large assessment centre (6500 sq foot) that is currently closed for our usual 5 & 10 days training courses but we are still assessing for NVQ level 2 qualifications through EWPA (Experienced Worker Practical Assessments) at the weekends. The EWPA requires the candidate to work on their own in a dedicated assessment area for an allocated amount of time to complete the practical assessment (between 6 and 9 hours depending on which trade). We can easily distance a maximum of 3 assessment areas within the centre 6m apart from each other. The assessor will assess at distance and when required at the end of the assessment, ask you to stand to one side so he can measure and mark your practical assessment. So the carpentry NVQ level 2 is still running but with no more than 3 candidates per time in the building.
If you would like to gain your NVQ through the EWPA route or would like more information the please email firstname.lastname@example.org and the assessor will give you a call back within 24 hours.
We really can quickly get you you NVQ quickly
What if you need to be earning a wage again even before you’ve completed our carpentry EWPA route? Well, that’s not too much of a drama, either – you simply need to first secure your place and pay your deposit, so that we can get you registered. This will enable you to apply for and gain a temporary card lasting for a maximum of six months until you have completed the EWPA.
Don’t wait any longer to email the YTA team at email@example.com during COVID-19 lockdown and on 01274 682199 once we are all back at work, to book your place or to discuss how we can best serve your construction training / assessment requirements.
