NVQ Level 2 Assessments – 2 options available. EWPA & OSAT
To be classed as a fully skilled worker in your trade in the eyes of the CSCS card scheme you must hold your NVQ level 2 in your trade. This can be gained by either OSAT (On Site Assessment & Training) or EWPA (Experienced Worker Practical Assessment).
The EWPA is you coming to our Centre (Bradford, West Yorkshire) and completing a 1 to 2 day assessment pre-set by the NOCN Cskills awarding body. To undertake the EWPA you must have a minimum of 5 years’ experience.
(1 to 2 days at YTA) – You must have a minimum of 5 years trade experience
The OSAT is when our assessor visits you in your workplace (on-site or in domestic projects) and builds a portfolio of evidence so you can achieve the NVQ level 2 over several weeks. To undertake the OSAT you must have approximately 3 years’ experience.
(Site / Domestic Visits) – You must have a minimum of 3 years trade experience
Once you hold the NVQ level 2 along with your health and safety CSCS card test you can gain your blue skilled worker ‘skilled worker’ CSCS card. Once you have the NVQ level 2 your CSCS card will be upgraded to a blue card (skilled worker) and this means you can now work on any site completing your trade.
