Construction Worker Qualifications
Are you employed in the British construction industry? If you are then you will know that the 2010 deadline for a fully qualified construction workforce is now less then two years away. Many sites already have a policy of refusing to employ people who do not have the correct card which proves their level of ConstructionSkills. No card could mean no job after 2010, so let's talk about the options that are open to you.
If you are a young person and want to work in construction, then you might want to consider a full apprenticeship. The skills that you will learn will lead to a National Vocational Qualification, and remember that as an apprentice you are earning while you learn.
On the other hand, if you are an experienced construction worker, then you can still gain the card that you need via on-site assessment. You might want to take the opportunity to improve your skills' level by taking one of the work-based training programmes that are now on offer.
So, whatever you age and experience, if you want to work in construction after 2010 then you are going to have to get carded. Click on the link that I have already given you to start that process off.
