Lantra are pleased to announce the launch of our new suite of NVQ qualifications in Plant Operations.
• Level 2 NVQ certificates in Plant Operations (Construction)
• Level 2 NVQ Diplomas in Plant Operations (Construction)
• Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Controlling and Lifting Occupations – Slinger/Signaller (Construction)
Developed in conjunction with NPORS, a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) partner card scheme, we have been able to develop comprehensive NVQ qualifications that meet the needs of industry at a highly competitive price. The NVQ will allow individuals to upgrade their NPORS / CSCS Trained Operator card (Red Card) to NPORS / CSCS Competent Operator Card (Blue Card). The qualification will also be accepted to upgrade CPCS cards. NVQ Pricing We appreciate cost is a big driver in the construction sector, and therefore Lantra’s NVQ’s have been developed to offer the cheapest option in the marketplace whilst still ensuring the quality you’d expect from a Lantra qualification. The qualifications will also be eligible for CITB levy grants. Whilst many UK industries are suffering as a result of staff and skills shortages, nowhere is this more prevalent than in warehousing and logistics.
Lantra training is seen as providing an effective solution that could help the situation and, to ensure we have the appropriate presence and credibility in the warehousing sector, Lantra has, following a recent audit, become a member of the ABA (Accrediting Bodies Association). Membership of this key industry body will ensure our training courses gain official recognition from all the major players in the warehousing sector. If you have any questions or are interested in offering our Warehouse product suite, please contact Alec Hands. By working with NPORS, we are also able to share the costs of quality assurance, meaning we can keep costs lower than our competitors. E-Portfolio As part of our NVQ qualification suite, we will also be offering Learners ‘free of charge’ access to our e-portfolio, an online platform where they can upload their digital supporting evidence. All competitors in the marketplace charge an additional fee for their e-portfolio facility but as part of this Lantra/NPORS initiative, it’s included in the price.
