CITB funding available for experienced workers’ assessment

CITB funding available for experienced workers’ assessment

Funding is available for employers to put their staff through an Experienced Worker Practical Assessment (EWPA). Funding of £400 is available from CITB.

Major changes to CSCS CRO cards were introduced on 1st October. There’s more information in a recent issue of Tilezine, the TTA’s e-newsletter — www.tilezine.co.uk/article/149/6

CRO cards are being phased out, so workers who don’t hold the relevant qualifications need to get them. EWPA is the fast-track route for experienced workers to demonstrate their knowledge and skills and to get the right accreditation needed.
