CSCS Profiled Route is Now Closed

The CSCS Profiled Route was introduced in 2011 as a route to the Black or Gold Card for construction site managers or supervisors who have on-site experience but no nationally recognised qualification in construction.
With the announcement made by the Construction Leadership Council, the Profiled Route no longer supports industry’s desire for a fully qualified workforce.

Applicants will still be able to apply for a Construction Site Manager or Construction Site Supervisor CSCS card, but will be required to complete an NVQ/SVQ levels 4, 5, 6 or 7.

OR:
  • If you hold a degree, HND, HNC, certain CIOB certificates or NEBOSH qualifications you will be able to apply for an Academically Qualified Person card.
  • If you hold professional membership you may be eligible for a Professional Qualified Person card.

What to do next:

To obtain the Gold Supervisory Card you must now complete the NVQ Level 4 Diploma in Construction Site Supervision - Visit the Supervisor card flowchart for further information on applying for this card.

To obtain the Black Managers Card you must now complete the NVQ Level 6 Diploma in Construction Site Management - Visit the Manager card flowchart for further information on applying for this card.

Where can you find Training Providers that deliver these courses?

Here is a list of the Awarding Bodies who have approved training providers delivering the NVQ Level 4 Diploma in Construction Site Supervision and the NVQ Level 6 Diploma in Construction Site Management.

Timescale

You must be an experienced (normally 1 year in the last three) Site Supervisor or Site Manager in order to register for the NVQ Level 4 in Construction Site Supervision or Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Construction Site Management.

The average completion time of these qualifications is between 3 to 12 months.

Funding

As these are nationally recognised qualifications there may be funding available depending on your circumstances. Your training provider will be able to give advice on local funding which may be available.

If you are employed your company may be able to claim some of the costs through their CITB Training Plan. If you are unemployed you should talk to your Job Centre.
