Please note: This card will be available from September 2021

The Industry placement card is valid for three years and cannot be renewed.

This temporary card is available for learners undergoing a construction related qualification or training programme which requires the completion of a work placement, such as T-Levels or Trainee Skills Development Programmes.

To be eligible for this card, applicants must:

  • Be aged 16 or above
  • Be registered onto a qualification or training programme requiring a minimum of 30 days’ work placement and that will ultimately lead to becoming eligible for an Apprentice, Skilled Worker, Supervisor or Manager card
  • Have successfully passed the CITB Health, Safety and Environment Operative test or one of the equivalent tests offered by CSCS Partner Schemes

Industry placement card applicants must be able to provide proof of registration onto their qualification. As a minimum, you are required to provide evidence from your academic institution or training provider that includes:

  • The applicant’s name
  • The full qualification title of the course you are registered onto, including the qualification level if relevant
  • The date you registered for the qualification
