Are You Eligible for Construction Site Management NVQ?
From the range of all site management quals, the NVQ Level 6 Construction Site Management is the most encompassing and unit-heavy qualification designed for seasoned site managers typically with 5+ years of experience in the construction industry.
You are expected to have hands-on experience and knowledge in organising and managing site setups, health and safety, progress meetings, resources, planning, quality control, and handover of large construction sites and projects.
This qualification is recognised by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB)
Your main responsibilities should involve managing everyday construction site operations, organizing H&S, helping teams and workforce in delivering projects within the given timeframe and budget constraints.
During the assessment, you will be required to demonstrate your practical skills and knowledge of your site management duties by providing evidence and examples of your work and communication from current or previous projects.
Your provided evidence should demonstrate your understanding and ability to achieve the following:
control project costs and procurements, implement monitoring procedures
collect and analyse the required Health and Safety information about safe methods of work and implement them in the project organisational procedures to raise H&S awareness and culture in the workplace
develop efficient work programmes and schedules for contractor activities, and be able to analyse and amend the programme for the duration of the entire project
plan and organise work activities in line with the project’s programme of works and allocate tasks for subcontractors and workforce
manage monitoring and reporting systems of the project progress against programme of works to minimise disruptions
organise, take part in, and/or chair regular site progress meetings
plan and organise site layout for work activities, movement and site traffic, and storage of project resources
develop and manage environmental protection procedures
devise quality control procedures and implement appropriate reporting systems
plan and organise the supply of project resources, implement and manage monitoring systems
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 site management role.
Depending on your specific site management duties and construction sector you work in, you can choose between different pathways for this qualification.
Building and Civil Engineering
Highways Maintenance and Repair
Traditional and Heritage Building
Our NVQ assessor, a chartered member of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), will conduct an initial screening and induction to identify the most suitable pathway options that align with your job role.
NVQ Level 6 Site Management Qualification Structure
To achieve the NVQ Level 6 Diploma in Construction Site Management, you must complete a minimum of 20 units which makes it the most unit-heavy site management qualification from the range. Depending on your chosen pathway, there will be a set of mandatory units, as well as a selection of optional units from which you must complete a minimum number. Therefore, to achieve the Site Management with Building and Civil Engineering Pathway, you need to complete at least one unit from the optional group.
For example, below is a list of mandatory and optional units that comprise the NVQ Level 6 Construction Site Management - Building and Civil Engineering pathway. It includes 19 mandatory units, all of which must be completed. Additionally, there are 6 optional units from which you must select at least one that best aligns with your job role. This ensures that the evidence you provide for the assessment criteria in the optional group is relevant to your selected unit.
Before starting the assessment, during the screening and assessment planning phase, you will have the opportunity to discuss the qualification units and pathway options. Your NVQ assessor will determine and recommend the most suitable option for you.

How It Works?
Usually, it takes 2 assessment sessions to cover the site management assessment criteria. Depending on the quality of evidence we receive from you and your personal circumstances, these sessions may involve a site visit.
Although the assessment process can vary depending on the route you've selected at the time of your booking (for options, see the booking form), we can outline typical steps you can expect during your assessment. However, given the dynamic nature of our industry, we always strive to adapt the process to suit your individual situation.
For simplicity, let’s break down the process of a typical construction site management assessment into six chronological steps.
Step 1: Introduction
You will receive an instructional email as startup guidance, which will include a list of product evidence examples and suggestions for effective collaboration methods with your assessor. This will help you identify the evidence you need to compile for your assessment portfolio.
Step 2: Welcome Call
You will arrange an induction call (usually a video call) to discuss the assessment requirements, your work, and the product evidence from your current or previous jobs. During this call, you'll agree on the next steps and gain a clear understanding of what you need to do to prepare for the first assessment session. The assessor will also email you any required course materials.
Step 3: Compile Evidence
Based on the guidance and advice provided by the assessor, you will start compiling evidence (if not already available) for the first assessment session.
Step 4: The Assessment
Once you have gathered sufficient evidence for the first session, you will arrange a video call to discuss all the files and explain your work process and methods. The first session is generally designed to cover around 50% of the assessment criteria.
Step 5: Assessment Progress
Following the first session, the assessor will review all the evidence and conduct a gap analysis to identify the remaining criteria. You will receive feedback on the necessary steps to address these criteria. Once you have gathered the additional evidence, you can arrange your next session, which may involve an onsite visit or a video call based on the evidence quality and your circumstances.
Step 6: Completion
During this session, our goal is to address all the remaining criteria to complete your assessment. In most cases, this marks the final session. Once we have covered 100% of the assessment criteria, we will compile and finalize your portfolio. Then, we will proceed to claim your NVQ achievement from the Awarding Body.
If you're having difficulties securing a job or getting on site without the specialist CSCS card, we can register you for the relevant NVQ qualification within 1 work day, which will enable you to apply for the Experienced Worker (Red) CSCS card so that you can gain access to the site and commence your work as soon as possible.

Free up your time for more important things in your life! This package might save you days or even weeks of evening work filling out the paperwork. During the assessment, your assessor will dedicate additional time for professional discussions about your work where you will answer clear and simple questions tailored to your industry and job role. After all, this feels like a natural conversation about your work. With this option, your assessor will do significant legwork for you - we will then use your verbal responses to fill out all the answers in the paperwork on your behalf.

While our standard Fast Track assessments are designed to be completed within 4 weeks, the Accelerate package is for individuals who require an extra level of push and support to ensure they stay on track and complete their assessments with greater focus and determination. The assessor's role becomes similar to that of a personal trainer in the gym, offering the push and accountability necessary to maintain the pace of your assessment progress. When procrastination creeps in, expect a friendly phone call from your assessor who will help you get back on your progress track. In addition, our experience shows that assessments including this package naturally receive somewhat of a priority status as your name becomes shortlisted in the list of active learners.
* this package is not available to individuals suffering from any form of mental health conditions
Often, even construction managers with long-term experience have gaps in knowledge or lack some resources and evidence required for passing specific assessment units and criteria. That's exactly why we've created this service. Your consultant's role is to help you fill those gaps, offering direct guidance that draws on years of industry experience. Receive professional guidance and assistance in finding the right resources and implementing best practices, management procedures, and industry standards in your current role, which will not only improve your project standards and your company's professional image but also help in implementing the latest practices, enhancing compliance, driving growth, and securing more competitive contracts. Ultimately, implementing new systems and policies will produce the necessary evidence required for meeting the assessment criteria, which will achieve all goals at once.
* this package is NOT designed for novices who have not had prior experience in the industry
