I have been working for many years. Why do I need a qualification now?
In 2015 the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) announced (via the Industrial Strategy: Construction 2025) that skills certification card schemes carrying the CSCS logo must operate with nationally recognised qualifications (NVQs or approved equivalents) in place for all occupations.
Only qualifications can provide a consistent means of proving an individual’s skills. This is why the Construction Leadership Council requires all those working in construction related occupations to obtain a recognised qualification.
