Street Works

SQA Care

SQA offers a complete suite of Street Works qualifications for operatives and supervisors working on the roads/highways (reference to the unit specifications can be seen below). These Street Works qualifications meet the requirements of the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (NRSW) which requires work involving the installation, renewal, maintenance and inspection of underground apparatus in the highway to be under the control of competent persons who are in possession of a valid Street Works card.

Qualifications are delivered through SQA approved centres. For further information please contact:
