This qualification is aimed at those who undertake work to produce products from glass and related materials in the glass processing sector. This covers the handling of products throughout the process. Units in this qualification cover cutting, shaping, assembling, and finishing the products, including decoration. It is not expected that glass processors all do the same activities: the qualification is structured to ensure that there is a high degree of flexibility in the qualification.
The standard covers the most important aspects of the job. This qualification is at Level Two, although there may be units at different levels, and should be taken by those who are fully trained to deal with routine assignments. Candidates should require minimum supervision in undertaking the job. This will be achieved with observations and training workshops on knowledge.
