The Construction Skills Register (CSR) is introducing two new cards, an Experienced Worker Card and an Experienced Supervisor Card.
With the recession came a massive shift in employment numbers within the industry, as well as a massive drop-off in the number of construction related courses at further and higher education…
It is vital that this negative spiral is now reversed.
Northern Ireland’s economic recovery can only be secured with a buoyant construction sector at its core and issues ranging from apprenticeships to the careers advice and guidance given in schools and colleges must be high on government’s list of priorities.
There is only three weeks remaining before the Construction Skills Register (CSR) removes all occupational assessments, including supervisors. From 1 September 2019 all new blue and gold card applicants will be required to hold an NVQ Level 2 qualification (or higher) relevant to the card holder’s occupation. Health and safety training will continue to be required.
We have launched our H1 2019 State of Trade Survey for members to complete.
