‘First’ claimed in repair NVQ
5th December 2017
Finishing and repair firm PLASTIC SURGEON is claiming an industry first by creating a specially-tailored NVQ in surface repair to develop and promote the skills of its staff and ensure compliance with new requirement for a CSCS card.
Operations director Gary Danson said: “The NVQ qualification is something we’d been considering for a while.
All of our finishers are trained to a very high standard, but while their capabilities are evidenced in their resultant work, our finishers don’t have official recognition in terms of qualifications. With the implementation of the NVQ, they’ll have the appropriate qualification to go alongside and to underscore their considerable skillset.
“Plastic Surgeon’s finishers undergo rigorous training when they join the company and the NVQ will serve to enhance this, reinforcing their understanding of industry requirements and ensuring they achieve the requisite standard of knowledge.”
With the course requirements accomplished and now in place, 80 of Plastic Surgeon’s current finishers have been enrolled, with a further 100 set to join them over the coming months. New recruits will also benefit from the NVQ and will attain it as part of their initial job training.

We’re delighted to be able to offer the NVQ and are looking forward to rolling it out across all of our finishers.”
