As of the 1st of September 2017, GQA’s established Q-card is a formal partner of the Construction Skills Certification Scheme, with CSCS now no longer issuing glass, glazing or fenestration related cards. In addition to CSCS Q-cards for our glass and glazing related occupations, the agreement also extends access to the GQA CSCS card for those achieving a GQA Construction related Qualification, including, but not limited to, occupations such as Labourers, Bricklayers, Steel Fixers and Site Supervisors.
CSCS and CITB have been active in informing Sites and Site Managers about the partner card schemes and further information can be found by visiting CSCS.UK.com and the Partner Card Schemes page CLICK HERE for more information
Build UK have also communicated information on CSCS Partner schemes, developing the Site Access Flowchart with CITB and this can be accessed via the BuildUK.org website CLICK HERE for more information
The GQA CSCS Q-card indicates that the card-holder has demonstrated knowledge and skills in accordance with national occupational standards, with information on achievements, and any related GQA accredited training, being accessible by scanning the QR-code on the front of the card by using a barcode reader application from any smartphone with a data / wi-fi connection. Cards can also be validated by calling the GQA Office on 01142 720033.
