National Apprenticeship Week

This week is National Apprenticeship Week 2024 - a celebration of the positive impact apprenticeships make to individuals, businesses and the wider economy.

CSCS is seeking to support the construction industry's next generation in a number of ways.

Employers and the wider industry are being reminded of the importance of ensuring those on, or about to enter, apprenticeships are using the appropriate Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card – specifically the Apprentice card.

The CSCS Apprentice card is issued free of charge and is for individuals on recognised apprenticeships.

It is valid for four years and six months and cannot be renewed. Cardholders are expected to complete their apprenticeship by the time the card expires and apply for a skilled CSCS card.

To apply for this card you will be required to submit evidence that you are registered for an apprenticeship and that you have passed a CITB Health, Safety and Environment test, or an approved alternative.

Applicants should complete the Enrolment Evidence Form as this includes all the evidence required to apply for the Apprentice card and may help avoid delays to your application.

The CSCS Approved Apprenticeship Standards list, includes all the recognised CSCS occupation titles.

Details of the CITB Health & Safety Awareness course can be found here
