The CSCS Profiled Route was introduced in 2011 as a route to the Black or Gold Card for construction site managers or supervisors who have on-site experience but no nationally recognised qualification in construction. The primary objective of CSCS is to provide evidence that individuals working on construction sites have the required training and qualifications for the type of work they carry out.
With the announcement made by the construction leadership council, Profiled Route no longer supports industry’s desire for a fully qualified workforce.
Applicants will still be able to apply for a Construction Site Manager or Construction Site Supervisor CSCS card, but will be required to complete an NVQ/SVQ levels 4, 5, 6 or 7*.
Please note that existing cards issued under Profiled Route will remain valid and can be renewed as normal provided applicants renew their cards in line with CSCS scheme requirements.
