NVQ C&G2357-91

The C&G2357-91 pathway is for those who may have older qualifications such as the C&G2330, C&G2360 or a mixture of qualifications and need to still gain recognition as an approved electrician with the JIB Gold Card.  We can map these into the correct route for you and ensure you gain the requirements but this can take a lot longer than the normal NVQ to claim from C&G so allow up to 4 months when you complete for the final certificate to come through due to its complexity.

In general, an overseas qualified and experienced person would go through the Ecctis (UK ENIC) electrotechnical mapping* (which maps against the knowledge units of the apprenticeship qualification), complete a documented or recorded technical discussion with the training provider to confirm that they have knowledge and work experience across the range of activity required, and then would need to be working in the UK to provide evidence for the practical assessments.

ECCTIS link

Past evidence from overseas work cannot be accepted.

*Please note the electrotechnical mapping and NOT the general mapping must be undertaken 

Training providers cannot accept any non UK qualifications without this mapping.

There will be no exemptions from the practical performance elements – even if you have significant practical experiences of working overseas, you will still need to be working in the UK to complete the practical elements of the EWA.

To gain an ECS card with non-UK qualifications, you will need to complete one of two routes for Experienced Worker
