GQA Qualifications became the only organisation issuing CSCS cards for the Glass and Glazing industries following the announcement of its partnership with the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) for its Q-Cards.

The agreement also extends access to the GQA CSCS card for those achieving a GQA Construction related Qualification, including, but not limited to, occupations such as Labourers, Bricklayers, Steel Fixers and Site Supervisors.

This arrangement covers Temporary, Trainee and Apprenticeship cards (Red), Full cards (Blue, Gold and Black) and all renewals for expiring and expired cards. It applies to GQA candidates and achievers and all other Awarding Organisations offering Glass industry qualifications.

Although this overview focuses primarily on the Glass Industries, GQA can issue CSCS Q-cards for GQA Construction qualifications as well, including the construction site labourers card (Green).
The GQA CSCS Q-card indicates that the card holder has demonstrated knowledge and skills in accordance with national occupational standards, with information on achievements and any related GQA accredited training, being accessible by scanning the QR-code on the front of the card by using a barcode reader application from any smartphone with a data / wi-fi connection. Cards can also be validated by calling the GQA Office on 01142 720033.
