Signs Express staff in Plymouth complete NVQ

Staff at the Plymouth branch of Signs Express have successfully completed the industry standard NVQ course for Sign and Manufacturing and Installation.

Signs Express centre owner Chris Reilly, Production Manager Julian Kitt, trainee Richard Brady and Fitter and Simon Joyce, Sign Maker Perry Thomas all completed the course and were presented with their certificates by Clive Mitchell at Walsall College.

Chris said: 'My staff have met and exceeded the requirements in Sign Manufacturing and Installation for the NVQ. This qualification will entitle my staff for registration onto the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card, which is run by the CITB. The CSCS card will allow my team to take on larger site based jobs within the area and give them a distinct advantage over their local competitors.'

The NVQ course is designed to equip and qualify workers for their roles in modern sign making techniques and is an assessed distance-learning course, run in conjunction with Walsall College and the British Sign & Graphics Association (BSGA). Signs Express is a full BSGA member and undertook the vocational training while on the job.
