As a construction manager, you are expected to be in charge of smaller parts of a project, or multiple projects at the same time. Your duties should be closely related to the construction management operations of specific specialist contracts.

Your hands-on experience in construction management must be backed up with proof of evidence from your work practice which we can relate to the assessment criteria.

The evidence you will supply can be from your current as well as previous contracts, and it should demonstrate your ability to do the following:

  • gather and implement the necessary information in order to organise H&S procedures in the construction environment
  • obtain necessary information, plan, and develop the work programme for your team operations in line with a main contractor's requirements
  • develop organizational procedures for monitoring project progress
  • implement construction organisational procedures and delegate specific organisational tasks to line supervisors or subcontracting teams to meet the contract requirements
  • control budget, costs and procurements, as well as organise supply and storage of the project resources
  • control the quality of the project
  • attend and take part in regular project progress meetings
  • liaise with other contractors, superiors, or clients regarding the project

Remember different companies use different types of information and documentation. Your task is to explain (ideally with proof) how you organise, manage and execute your work activities in your management role.

Depending on your specific construction management role within the contract, you have a range of routes to choose from for this qualification:

  1. General
  2. Buying
  3. Estimating
  4. Planning
  5. Quantity Surveying

You should select the pathway that closely relates to your current job role, as it will be much easier to gather and provide the necessary evidence to cover the criteria. You will discuss these options with your NVQ assessor during the screening and enrolment process, and you'll be advised on the best route that suits your construction management role.

The selected pathway will determine a set of mandatory and optional units that you will be required to cover. To learn more about this, refer to the "Qual Structure" section.

The Level 6 Construction Management qualification is assessed by an NVQ assessor who is a chartered member of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).

NVQ Level 6 Construction Site Manager
Construction managers employed directly by the main contractor or large specialist subcontracting company may want to pursue the NVQ Level 6 Construction Site Management qualification.

Can I fail the NVQ assessment?

Failure is not an option for us.

Our company and assessors have a screening process in place. We will conduct a screening of your knowledge and overall work experience before invoicing and registering you. This is to confirm your ability to meet the assessment criteria for the qualification and to ensure that the assessment is a natural step in your professional development.

In simple terms, if our assessor has confirmed your eligibility after the screening process, we will work with you and provide support until you receive your qualification.

It is important to note that the assessment cannot be completed without your participation, motivation, and cooperation with the assessor. Our screening process should confirm your commitment.

How soon can I apply for a CSCS card?

The timeframe for the NVQ assessment may vary depending on your employment status and your ability to provide evidence of your work practice. Typically, you will discuss all aspects of your circumstances with your assessor before starting the course to confirm a potential completion date. Once you agree on a realistic and achievable completion date, the assessment can begin.

Additionally, on our website's booking form, you have the option to select the Fast Track NVQ assessment package for a quicker assessment process. For more information, please check out the booking form options.

Can I register for the NVQ course without a National Insurance number?

Upon receipt of the full payment for the assessment services provided to you, our sales department will release your certificate.

Are any discounts available?

Our company is willing to discuss potential discount offers for groups or companies that commit to multiple (3+) assessment courses. Please contact us to discuss your options.

Can I still do the NVQ if I'm dyslexic or find myself to have a non-academic mind?

Yes, having dyslexia or a non-academic mind does not necessarily affect the outcome of the NVQ assessment. Our assessors take into consideration your unique situation and can make an assessment plan that suits your needs. Your grammar ability is not a significant factor in the assessment process.
