The Street Works Complexes

The Street Works scheme is derived from two sets of regulations which cover England, Wales and Scotland, made under the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991. (These regulations were introduced in Northern Ireland in 1997.)

The sixteen units of competence are for Operatives and Supervisors and fall into two groups: nine units for Operatives and eight units for Supervisors.  One of these units is applicable to both groups.

Below are the sixteen units of competence.

Candidates receive a unit certificate for each Street Works unit that they achieve.  In addition, the achievement of various combinations of units leads to full Street Works awards.  There are ten full qualifications, which are listed below along with the units required to achieve them.  When a CABWI candidate achieves all of the required units for a full award, CABWI issues the full award certificate automatically.
