Who is this Qualification for?

This qualification is aimed at those who are involved in Plastering activities in the workplace. It is not expected that candidates working in this industry all do the same activities so the qualification has been developed to allow opportunities for those carrying out work in any one of the following broad categories; solid basic Plastering, solid full Plastering, basic Fibrous Plastering and full Fibrous Plastering. Those taking the qualification must also prove knowledge and competence in working at heights, calculating quantities and wastage and the use of powered and hand tools and equipment. All work completed must be done in accordance with Building Regulations and Industry recognised safe working practices, including the disposal of waste.

The qualification is structured to ensure that there is a high degree of flexibility within the units available and will allow employees from companies of all sizes and specialisms equal opportunity to complete. To provide this opportunity in addition to the core skills above, candidates will also be able to select optional units recognising skills including, working with Direct Bond Dry Linings, laying Sand and Cement screeds, installing mechanically fixed plasterboard and carrying out repair work.

The standards cover the most important aspects of the job. This qualification is at Level 2, although some units may be at different levels and should be taken by those who are fully trained to deal with routine assignments. Candidates should require minimum supervision in undertaking the job.
This is one of a number of qualifications for occupations in the Construction Industry, more information can be found at www.gqaqualifications.com.

What is required from Candidates?

QCF qualifications are made up of a number of units that have a credit value or credits. These credits must be achieved in the correct combination from mandatory and optional units: this qualification has 3 mandatory units, which have a total of 10 credits and several groups of optional units covering the various pathways within the qualification. Candidates must achieve all 3 mandatory units, plus the minimum credits from the selected pathway. The minimum credit value of the qualification is 37 credits.

The units are made up of the things those working in these job roles need to know and the tasks they need to be able to do to carry out the work safely and correctly. These are called Learning Outcomes, and all must be met to achieve the unit
