Another very happy candidate: Check out Craig’s SVQ3 experience with us


Craig Bradley, a Site Supervisor at Tarmac, has recently completed our Sixth Modern Apprenticeship, Occupational Work Supervision programme. A programme which results in an SVQ Level 3 qualification and CSCS Gold Supervisory Card. Craig signed up as he sought an opportunity to gain a recognised qualification and to progress within his role. He thought our programme would be an excellent “platform to build upon in the future.”

Craig’s Developmental Journey with Esteem


When asked about his initial expectations of the programme, Craig stated that he had high hopes as he found the structure interesting. He was also looking forward to “learning different ways to do paperwork.”

With our unique approach to SVQs, Craig attended 4 half day developmental workshops. These cover the knowledge & understanding part of the SVQ. Craig felt that these were an excellent learning platform and a great length. This is because he had the opportunity to enhance his knowledge of relevant tools and processes in a supportive environment. However, afterwards he was able to attend to his daily responsibilities meaning he could focus fully at the workshops. He also found interacting with other candidates who came from different trades to be very insightful. In addition to the workshops, Craig had 1:1 sessions with his assessor and an on-site visit. Both of which he thought were very motivating, informative and great for “constructive feedback.”

Learning Outcomes

Having now completed the programme, Craig believes his confidence within his role has increased. This is because the content gave him confirmation that he was approaching situations correctly as well as increasing his knowledge of paperwork. Craig has since developed a paperwork checklist based on the content and ensures enough time is allocated to fill it out correctly. Overall, Craig feels he is able to carry out processes to a high standard with confidence.

Esteem’s course was interesting and made it easy to learn, with help at any time. Great course. Great people.

What’s next?

Overall, Craig has thoroughly enjoyed working towards his SVQ Level 3 qualification and believes he learnt valuable skills. His high expectations were met and he would like to progress onto our SVQ Level 4 management programme in the future. Craig has also recommended our OWS programme to others as he believes it is a great way to develop and enhance knowledge.

Congratulations Craig for your great achievement. We look forward to working with you again in the future.
