CSCS have issued clarification on using the Occupational Work Supervision NVQ/SVQ to apply for a CSCS card. CSCS has been contacted by a number of applicants and centres who are having problems applying for a CSCS card using the Occupational Work Supervision NVQ/SVQ.
The Occupational Work Supervision NVQ/SVQ requires candidates to either hold a Level 2 qualification in the skilled occupation or demonstrate relevant verifiable experience and competence in their occupational area. This requirement is detailed in the National Occupational Standard for the Occupational Work Supervision NVQ/SVQ.
However, it has come to CSCS’s attention that this requirement has not been consistently followed for a number of years. CSCS is now issuing clarification on the requirements for the Occupational Work Supervision NVQ/SVQ. Full details can be found on our website here www.cscs.uk.com/ows
To clarify the attached spreadsheet is the approved endorsement list for CSCS card purposes only, noting this document is subject to change. The reason this list differs to what is on the CITB NOS page for this qualification is due to the list covering the various sectors such as Plant, Scaffolding, Demolition, Asbestos and Thermal Insulation occupations which are covered by our partner schemes such as CPCS, CISRS, CCDO and TICA/ACAD and it is worth noting their qualification requirements will differ due the variance of their individual sector competency requirements.
