On Site Assessment and Training


On-site Assessment and Training (OSAT) helps experienced workers get the qualifications to prove they can do the job. It turns their existing skills and experience into a nationally recognised qualification such as an NVQ or SVQ. Having these qualifications also means that they will be eligible for a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card or Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) card.

The whole process is carried out whilst your workforce is on site so they don't have to take time off to go to college.

Companies, their staff and individuals are already seeing the benefits of OSAT in their workplace. These include:

  • Helping your workers achieve vital skills so they achieve CSCS or CPCS cards quickly and easily
  • Taking account of existing skills so workers only train towards the things they don't know how to do no downtime because it's carried out on site
  • Being easier for employees for whom reading or writing is difficult
  • Achieving qualifications to show to potential customers
  • More qualified and competent employees, who do the job better, complete work faster, have fewer accidents, and waste less time correcting mistakes

"OSAT confirms quality and competence in the workplace. It also creates greater awareness of health and safety issues. Ultimately the OSAT scheme generates a higher quality and more employable workforce."
