Legislative overview

From 31 December 2020 all Construction Skills Register (CSR) gold cards that were originally issued on the basis of an occupational assessment and Industry Accreditation (grandfather rights) will expire on 31 December 2024.

Therefore, from 31 December 2020, the cards impacted can be renewed in the normal way i.e. one day CSR health and safety course or applicable supervisor/manager refresher. The impacted cards will have a shorter than normal duration the closer they are issued to 31 December 2024. Then once these cards expire (on 31 December 2024) candidates will then have to be registered on or achieved a NVQ Level 3/4 qualification.

Candidates who already have an applicable NVQ qualification will continue to receive cards that are valid for 4 years from the date the relevant health and safety training is completed.

These changes are the latest in a series of amendments needed to ensure that CSR meets the Construction Leadership Council’s “One Industry Logo” requirements which will ensure CSR cards continue to be accepted in GB.

After changing career I was anxious about starting a new course, but People 1st made me feel confident and comfortable. They have encouraged me and provided constant support when I have needed it through my Level 2 and my Level 3 qualifications. They provide the best training and I don’t think I would have been able to complete my qualifications, if it wasn’t for the support they offered me. I will hopefully go on to do more qualifications with People 1st in the future.

I’ve just completed my Level 5 Management course with People 1st. I can’t thank them enough for all the help and support I received, from not only my tutor Amanda, but the organisation as a whole. My classes were always well structured and I felt I could ask for help and guidance whenever I needed it. People 1st have helped me take that next step in my career and I will always be eternally grateful.

Thank you to People 1st and to Caroline Bell for an excellent and informative Assessors Course. From day one, I felt Caroline was there to support me in every way. At times when life got in the way, there was always a check in and she was there to assist with ongoing assignments. The visits and personal discussions were done with a warm welcome and I was at ease completing these which ultimately lead me to successfully completing the course. I am delighted to now be a qualified assessor, thanks to the support of People 1st. I cannot l wait to help and support many other students on their journeys with their own careers.
