Progress routes

Completing this roofing qualification represents an achievement towards the highest possible award, the NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Built-up Felt Roofing. Therefore the next step for anyone wishing to progress is to consider adding this to their portfolio as you will need the NVQ Level 2 to gain lucrative site based work.

Undertaking the Built-up Felt Roofing NVQ2 would be an ideal step as it ensures that you as a student will have the practical experience as well as theoretical knowledge of the flat roofing discipline. This provides students who successfully complete the course with a good grounding for a long and prosperous career in the flat roofing sector. However, we consider it essential that the roofing career is considered to be ‘progressional’ in that every student should add more skills and qualifications as they gain experience to further their career.

Our roofing courses provide this clear progression route, helping learners to achieve the career goals they aspire to.

With these felt roofing skills and qualifications you can progress to a higher level of work during your career and you can for example, move on to work in the Building Services Industry further down the line. This helps those who wish, to progress from skilled occupations into technical, supervisory or managerial posts.
