The Experienced Worker Practical Assessment is open to Painter and Decorators, Bricklayers, and Carpenters who require a fast track, trouble free route to obtaining an NVQ qualification. On completion successful candidates can apply for the CSCS Skilled Worker Card.

Day 1 of assessment– Practical with a marking scheme, has to prove tolerance levels. All timed exercises. Can only use their own hand tools. Specification- drawings and all materials. Some leeway if candidate recognises own mistakes. 30% fail rate on practical. 2 reasons for failing are either rushing or just not skilled enough. The practical can be abandoned at any point if the candidate is not meeting the standard. If the candidate is successful they go onto day 2.

 Day 2 of assessment– Professional discussion, which is recorded. Candidate must do most of the talking and explain their experiences. There will be several job knowledge questions spanning a range of units and activities. Candidate has to show 8 hours of training through training booklets.

If candidates are successful on both days then they put together a portfolio and the EWPA is completed.
