Course Overview

This course is aimed at individuals who require a CSCS labouring card to get a job within the Construction Industry, but don’t currently have the required qualifications.

On successful completion of the course you will gain two accredited certificates and a score report:
- AIM Qualifications - Suite of Vocational Pathways Qualifications (AIMVOCs) in Construction and Building – Extended Award Level 1
- AIM Qualifications - Health and Safety in a Construction Environment Level 1
- CITB Health, Safety and Environment Score Report
Once you have achieved all assessments, we can then apply for your CSCS labouring card.

The course is fully funded for learners who are 19+, unemployed, looking for employment and claiming a benefit (evidence required). Funding is also available if you are working but earning less than £18, 525 (evidence required).
If you are not eligible for funding at this time, we can talk to you about different options. Please call 01254354423 and speak to Richard Dwyer.

What will I learn?

During the course you will demonstrate and develop your understanding of:
• Working in the Construction Industry
• Principles of Building, Construction and Communication
• General health risks in a construction environment
• Principles of risk assessment
• Health and welfare
• Working at height
• Safe manual handling
• Using equipment safely
• Site transport safety
• Environmental Awareness

How will the course be assessed?

The course is delivered over 3 days – 9:30am – 4pm on a Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, unless informed otherwise.
We currently run the course fortnightly.

We will assess your starting points when you join the course and this will give us and you a good idea about what you already know, regarding the topics covered on the course.

You will learn by;
- Toolbox Talks - Presentations and group activities on key topics relating to the Construction Industry
- Independent computer-based learning - Course materials are held on our Moodle site, which you will access whilst in class. These are interactive modules with information, quizzes, videos and feedback included. Whilst accessing the learning materials, you will be using key information to demonstrate and develop your knowledge by answering questions based on topics relating to the Construction Industry.

Most responses are multiple choice and you are provided with a score and feedback so that you are able to learn from and develop your choices, if necessary.

Materials and other information

If you are interested, please register your interest in the course and a member of staff will contact you.

Progression and Careers

At the end of each module, you will be asked a series of questions relating to the topic. You will be given a score and feedback based on those answers. There is also a progress and activity completion bar when logged in to Moodle. This makes it nice and clear which parts you have completed/passed and which you have not.

You will be able to discuss this with your tutor if there are any concerns.
