QCF Programmes

In today's working environment good Health and Safety practices are essential.  In construction and construction related activity Health, Safety Environment (CSCS), NPORS and CPCS cards are required to obtain access to all building development sites.  Changes to the card schemes means your employees may not gain full competence cards in any occupation without achieving the relevant QCF (NVQ)

QCFs (NVQs) are designed specifically to demonstrate occupational competence in the workplace. We start at a minimum of QCF Level 2 to coincide with the Government’s target minimum level of qualification for the entire UK workforce.   

Our team is available to offer any advice and guidance on the appropriate QCF for your employees. If you have any questions or queries and would like to discuss these please contact info@expedient-training.co.uk or call 0191 4890212.
