The CSCS card is needed on almost all construction sites now and an essential for anyone wanting a career in building. The specialist practice software is at libraries in Clevedon, Portishead, Nailsea, Worle, The For All Healthy Living Centre and Weston Town Hall. Please contact these libraries to book a pc with this software.

Westonworks is a CSCS test centre as well as helping people find work, volunteering or learning and have been supporting residents to gain the skills and knowledge needed for the test for the last 4 years. Westonworks Manager, Adrian Stone said “For anyone wanting to get onto a building site these days the CSCS card is an absolute must have; whether as a builder or a site visitor – such as a delivery driver or surveyor. We’ve had everyone from tree surgeons to IT networking technicians come to take the test to be able to work on sites.” “We wanted to make the practice more accessible for people, so in addition to westonworks people can now make use of the facilities in their local library”
