    The TTA has secured CITB funding to train eight new NVQ assessors over the next 18 months; providing an assessor infrastructure for the wall and floor tiling sector across the UK which will support quality assured assessment of experienced operatives to NVQ L2. Funding will also be available for NVQ EWPAR/OSAT training, which is designed to help fixers obtain their CSCS cards.

    Experienced Worker Practical Assessment (EWPA) offers experienced learners a way of achieving a qualification. It is available to very experienced workers who do not require any further tiling training. This assessment method combines the use of witness testimonies, employer endorsement, practical assessment, professional discussion and Q&As.

    Having its own NVQ assessors will help the TTA strengthen its training activities and make it easier for companies and independent fixers to access the training support they need.

    It is also the intention to promote and support a skilled and qualified workforce, which will stimulate the market and uptake by providing a route to qualification for experienced operatives via on-site assessment.

    The capacity to register learners to this programme will be greatly improved by the addition of eight new assessors. TTA will research and identify suitable candidates from within the sector to take on the role of assessor, and will give full support to the assessors both during the training process and throughout the EWPAR/OSAT of experienced operatives.
