TITLE
Ennstone certificate of proficiency
ARTICLE
Ennstone Thistle has a large contracting business in the North of Scotland consisting predominantly of road surfacing squads together with a number of smaller construction and civil
engineering squads.

In 2007, it was recognised that there were no formal schemes available to train and assess new and existing employees, particularly with regard to contract surfacing.

Therefore, an in-house training scheme was devised by Willie Oswald who has 47 years’ experience in the industry.

The certificate of proficiency provides an entry level training course for new employees and prepares existing employees for assessment at S/NVQ Level 2 in Road Building for surfacing operatives. An S/NVQ Level 2 on Construction Operations is designed for civil operatives.

Ennstone Thistle approached the Scottish Qualification Authority for accreditation for the training scheme, and this was achieved in October 2008.
