Experienced Worker Practical Assessment

The Experienced Worker Practical Assessment route is a short course, over 20 hours, with the aim of fast tracking learners, who have 5 years or more experience in their trade, in gaining the NVQ2 Qualification.

The trades that Chichester College offers for this route are:
• Bricklaying
• Site Carpentry

Cskills Awards has introduced this assessment method as an alternative assessment for
experienced workers. It is designed to test the practical competence and underpinning
knowledge of Learners across the full range of competencies for the NVQ Diploma Level 2.  This method is used to assess experienced Learners who would prefer to demonstrate their competence using a one-off practical assessment as opposed to the current method of observation on site combined with portfolio building. This method is not designed to replace existing assessment methods, but instead, to offer an alternative.

This assessment method combines the use of witness testimonies, employer endorsement, practical assessment, professional discussion and questions and answers. It is designed for use with experienced workers. Suitable applicants will have completed profiling, which will have identified they have adequate experience and no upskilling training is required. In craft occupations, it is expected that the Learner should have the necessary experience in the occupation, enabling sufficient time to gain experience across the range of work.

Contact us for more details


Bespoke and other training

We also offer a variety of other courses including Forklift training and assessment. We can also develop any bespoke training that your operators may require, for example we recently trained operators how to use the snow cutters at Heathrow Airport so that it could continue operating, despite weather conditions.
