19+ funding for new qualifications

At Pearson we require evidence of employer or professional body support to secure funding for adult learners for any new qualifications.

We are pleased to confirm that we have secured funding for 19+ learners for the following new qualification, when taken as a stand-alone qualification:

  • 601/4232/7 Pearson Edexcel Level 4 NVQ Diploma in Construction Site Supervision (Construction) (QCF)

Support from your employers is needed to secure SFA 19+ funding for the remaining qualifications which we have recently developed (see above list).

Pearson BTEC Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment (QCF) QN: 601/1861/1

This is a reminder that from July 2014 this qualification meets the new requirements for achievement of the CSCS Green Card for Labourers. This 4-credit qualification is live and available for centres to deliver. We provide a free BTEC workbook assessment to all approved centres mapped to the qualification learning outcomes.

2014/15 projects

We are currently scoping a number of potential new developments for projects to launch during 2014/15. We would greatly appreciate your input into this, especially if you have particular demand from learners or employers to deliver any of the following qualifications or simply to confirm you support the proposed developments.

Engineering Surveying Operations Level 2 NVQ

Employers working on the Crossrail project have identified a need for an NVQ to cover the competence of a 'Chain person' role carrying out technical support in Construction and Civil Engineering Surveying. It would provide progression to other technical roles at level 3 in Surveying, covered by existing qualifications such as Construction Contracting Operations. Currently there are no qualifications to cover this occupation at level 2. Discussions are in place to develop this as a Trailblazer project under the reformed Apprenticeship standards.

Building Multi-Trade Refurbishment and Repair NVQ and Technical Certificates at Level 3

This would offer a progression route from Building Multi-Trade Repair and Refurbishment (which replaces the Building Maintenance NVQ by November 2014).

Streetworks qualification

A competence qualification leading to the new streetworks act as a licence to practice, we're currently scoping demand to see if this can be developed.

If you have feedback on these, or any other areas in which you would like Pearson to develop qualifications please contact us.
