NVQ Assessment Process
Unlike the colleges, we have much shorter terms of completion. That's because our approach is deeply personalised , and we tailor the assessment plan to suit your circumstances. Also, for your convenience, we come to visit you at your workplace right when you need it, within a matter of days — not months.
As soon as you make an application for the NVQ Level 6 Construction Management assessment, you'll be appointed a dedicated assessor for the NVQ construction project management course who will guide you through the course and help you achieve your Diploma in Construction Management.
Our expert assessor will carry out the On-Site Assessment & Training (ASAT) course—meaning that no time off work is required. Your assessor will arrange the site visit on a day and time that suits your schedule. Then with your support and participation, you will agree with your assessor on the best assessment methods, such as examination of your product evidence (work documentation) and professional discussion, to most practically gather the required set of evidence to verify your competence in the construction management field.
Usually, it takes 2 site visits to cover all assessment criteria from the National Occupational Standards (NOS); however, this may differ, depending on your ability and motivation to cooperate with the assessor.
The NVQ construction management assessment course may take up to 6 months from start to finish, but the turnaround time can vary and depends upon your employment situation, motivation, and ability to supply the assessor with the needed information for the NVQ Level 6 Construction Management qualification.
Prior to starting the Construction Management NVQ assessment, you'll talk about all aspects of your employment situation with the assessor to verify the assessment end date. As soon as you can agree on a practical and attainable assessment completion date, the assessment process can begin.
