Short Period Grants

Short Period Grants are paid approved short-period qualifications in core construction skills. Qualifications can be delivered in several ways as defined within the approved standard, including:

  • off-the-job
  • through on-site assessment (OSAT)
  • through experienced worker practical assessment (EWPA)
  • by distance and e-learning
  • outside conventional working hours (evenings or weekends)

Short-period qualification grants are not available to support individual achievements that form part of other longer qualifications.
