GQA Qualifications Blog

The long-standing collaboration between Wiltshire College and Salisbury Glass, developed over the past ten years, has led to another group of eighteen successful students receiving their Level 2 qualifications.

Martin Sadler from GQA Qualifications Authority came along to present the Salisbury Glass members of staff with their certificates. The GQA is the Awarding Organisation for qualifications in the glass industry.

Salisbury Glass continues its commitment to staff training and promoting from within. It recognises the need for its workforce to achieve a level 2 qualification, which facilitates trade workers obtaining a CSCS card, as this is the industry standard required to work on most building sites.

Wiltshire College and Salisbury Glass hope this success will encourage staff to progress on to a Level 3 supervisory qualification, at an appropriate point in the future.

Martin Sadler External Verifier for GQA adds “It is really good to see a company and a training provider working closely together to build the skills, knowledge and understanding of the employees of Salisbury Glass. Wiltshire College have been working with Salisbury Glass for 6 years and as this is long term partnership it must be adding value to the business and that is what GQA qualifications are for”
