GQA receive approval from Ofqual for Construction Related QCF Qualifications

Following our previous communication regarding QCF qualifications in construction, GQA can now confirm that approval has been granted by Ofqual that will see a range of construction related qualifications available to GQA centres from the 1st October 2012.

The qualification offer has been made following continued requests from current GQA centres to enable them to offer related qualifications to a number of their clients within the construction and glazing related sectors.

GQA CEO, Mick Clayton, commented “ whilst our core expertise is in qualification development and delivery in the glass and related industries, the opportunity to expand our offer to current centres couldn’t be ignored. Our move into Print and Coatings has meant building new relationships with industry experts and centres outside of Glass, but this move into construction related qualifications will enable our current centres to broaden their offer to current clients whilst continuing their relationship with GQA”.
The qualifications available to centres from the 1st October are:
• Level 2 NVQ Diploma In Decorative Finishing and Industrial Painting Occupations
• Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Decorative Finishing – Painting and Decorating
• Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Maintenance Operations,
• Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Steelfixing Occupations
• Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Formwork
• Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Formwork
