Taking Ductwork to the Next Level.  ADCAS supports first college-based NVQ L3 Course

ADCAS has pledged its full support for a brand new course for the trainees who will form the next generation of management for the UK ductwork industry.

Organised in conjunction with SummitSkills and Bexley College, the course is the first of its kind to provide day-release students with a college-based NVQ L3 syllabus in this specialist subject. The new course will qualify as an Advanced Apprenticeship under the conditions of the scheme administered by the National Youth Agency to give 16-24 olds “earn-while-you-learn” training.

To qualify for the new course they will have already completed a basic apprenticeship/NVQ L2 in Ductwork.

Over two years in day-release sessions they will study a syllabus that includes:

  • City and Guilds Level 3 technical certificate in H&V Ductwork installation.
  • City and Guilds Level 3 NVQ in H&V ductwork Installation (including a mixture of on and off site assessment).
  • Key Skills (IT, Communication and Application of Number).
  • An opportunity for trainees to complete a SummitSkills advanced HVACR apprenticeship in Ductwork Installation.
