With over 8500 centres in 100 countries, City & Guilds is recognised by employers worldwide for providing qualifications that offer proof of the skills they need to get the job done.
The Certificates in Basic Construction Skills qualifications have been designed by City & Guilds to provide basic training in construction skills for those seeking employment in the construction industry. They are suitable for use with learners who have no previous experience or knowledge of the construction craft skills.
These qualifications are aimed at providing an introduction to these crafts and they specifically provide an understanding of particular craft tasks, not occupational competence in the craft. They are suitable for learners who do not have access to an NVQ, as they can contribute towards the knowledge and understanding required for the related NVQ, while not requiring or proving evidence of occupational competence.
