Kitchen Fitting NVQ Assessment

Speak to our team to assist you gaining the Fitted Interiors NVQ qualification required for CSCS cards in the UK


The NVQ in Fitted Interiors is the only officially recognised qualification for kitchen fitters, bedroom fitters, educational furniture, office and general furniture installers.

We are fully qualified assessors of the kitchen fitting and furniture fitting NVQ. We undertake an on-site assessment of your work and guide you through the process of achieving the award.

You do not need to take any time away from your work or undertake additional training. Neither do you need to do any coursework or exams.

The on-site assessment is designed for experienced bedroom, kitchen, office and educational furniture installers to demonstrate to the assessor they have the relevant skills to be worthy of the qualification.

The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) was set up to ensure skilled tradesmen are qualified to do the work they are undertaking on site. In order to gain access to UK building sites, a blue (skilled worker) CSCS card is needed to prove to the site manager that the bedroom, office, educational furniture or kitchen fitter holds the NVQ Level 2 in Fitted Interiors. Regulations are continually being tightened and holders of the green CSCS card are now only able to access sites for general labour purposes. The previous green Construction Site Operative is no longer available. To see more about CSCS cards click here.

By undertaking an assessment of your skills in your workplace, we can credit you with the qualification required to gain site access to undertake kitchen or bedroom installations.

Whether you are a one man band or team of installers, the qualification will be invaluable to you for the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can apply for the assessment?

The Cskills NVQ qualification in Fitted Interiors is open to any experienced kitchen or bedroom fitter. The aim of the assessment is to give you recognition of your skills without having to go through the process of official training, or take time out of work. There is more detail in the following pages that should help you decide whether you feel you should qualify for the NVQ.


As an experienced kitchen installer, why would I need the NVQ?

If you want to work on site as a kitchen installer you will need the NVQ and a CSCS card that details your qualifications. If you work domestically, having the NVQ will set you or your business apart from those that don’t.


How long will the assessment take?

The assessment will be done around your work, and at times that suit you. The assessor will try to obtain as much evidence to help you achieve the NVQ with as little disruption to you as possible. On average, the process will take one to three months.


How much will the assessment cost?

Our fees are very competitive. Before we can give an exact price we would need to understand a bit more about your relevant experience, typical line of work and location.
