JIB-PMES and JTL Plumbing L2 NVQ Up-skilling – Updated Scheme for 2013!
The JIB-PMES and JTL are pleased to announce that the L2 NVQ Up-skilling programme is to continue throughout 2013. We are pleased to confirm that the overall price of the scheme has not been increased, and in addition the financing options for the programme have been improved, as JTL can now offer flexible payment terms – meaning that eligible candidates will be able to spread the £1,200.00 cost by paying 6 instalments of £200.00 over the duration of the programme.
As a reminder to those new to the initiative, the programme is aimed at those working in the plumbing and heating sector who have completed technical certificate qualifications (e.g. City and Guilds 6129/City and Guilds 6128), but have not completed the appropriate NVQ – which is required to confirm their status within the industry. If this applies to you, or someone you know, then please download the flyer and application form which explain more about the initiative or contact us directly for more information on 0800 197 1060 or email@example.com
Success for NVQ Up-skilling Learner
The JIB-PMES would like to congratulate Tony McEvoy on becoming the first learner to complete and pass the NVQ up-skilling programme.
The scheme, which is run in conjunction with JTL, has enabled Tony to up-skill from a JIB-PMES Green Card holder (with a C&G 6129 technical certificate qualification) to an NVQ Level 2 qualified plumber and JIB-PMES 'Plumber' Blue card holder.
Commenting about his achievement Tony stated: "I recently received my blue JIB plumber's card after completing the NVQ level 2 Up-skill programme. During the past year whilst building up my NVQ portfolio I found the program and the assessor to be very helpful and accommodating. I would fully recommend the NVQ level 2 Up-skill programme to anyone who has done the C&G 6129 and are looking to gain the experience required to become a qualified plumber, for me personally this program was money well spent! I now have an NVQ level 2 which has enabled me to upgrade to a Blue Plumbers card".

SummitSkills Test Drive Talent Programme
The JIB-PMES is delighted to be involved in supporting the SummitSkills Test Drive Talent initiative which aims to place high achieving FE students with Building Services Engineering employers for a period of work placement. The aim is simply to provide the learner with a much needed chance for them to experience the 'real world' of work. In return the employer will have the opportunity to work with intelligent and motivated learners who can bring new perspectives, knowledge and skills to the business. The programme is ideal for employers who may be thinking about taking on an apprentice, and is in effect an opportunity for them to 'try before they buy'.
To support this and to help ensure that there are no restrictions or barriers that may affect the work placement, the JIB-PMES has developed a bespoke UK-PHMES CSCS Registration card specifically for learners who are accepted onto the Test Drive Talent programme. Angela Gridley, JIB-PMES General Manager, commented: "The JIB-PMES is pleased to be able to play a part in supporting this initiative, which we see as being beneficial to both learners and employers".

What cards are available?
Why register with the JIB-PMES?
The UK-PHMES CSCS Registration Scheme administered by the JIB-PMES
Registration cards are becoming essential for all trades people working in the Plumbing Industry.
The card shows site managers, employers and other tradespeople that you are qualified for the work you are doing, and have passed a Health & Safety Test.
The Health & Safety Test ensures that you have been trained to the required legal standard, and have the knowledge and competence to keep you and your fellow workers safe and healthy. From an employer's perspective it could improve the chances of winning major contracts and reducing site delays.
Your JIB-PMES card is something to be proud of.
