NVQ Level 6 Construction Site Management Requirements
The NVQ Level 6 Construction Site Management On-Site Assessment and Training (OSAT) program has been specially developed for construction site managers with 5+ years of experience in a management role, preferably working either for the main contractor or a large specialist subcontracting company.
As described in the National Occupational Standards (NOS), the assessment portfolio of the Construction Site Management NVQ must contain evidence that demonstrates a learner’s competence in essential aspects of the day-to-day running operations of a construction site.
A typical site manager is expected to demonstrate the required practical skills and knowledge to:
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
create an efficient programme of works and schedules for different 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 in order to allocate tasks for subcontractors and involved persons
organise monitoring and reporting systems of the project progress against programme of works to minimise disruptions
organise and chair regular project progress meetings
plan and organise site layout for operatives, work activities, site traffic and storage of the project resources
implement the planning and organisation of the supply of the project resources
organise and implement project cost control procedures
implement quality control and reporting system
identify and implement environmental protection procedures
As per the Awarding Body's recommendation, while undergoing the NVQ assessment, the Construction Site Manager must be in charge of either a large specialist subcontracting company or the main contractor’s managing team.
The NVQ level 6 construction site management assessment & training course enables skilled workers to demonstrate their experience, abilities, and clear understanding of the fundamentals of construction site management.
It also provides them with the opportunity to show the required skills in a real workplace environment, to ensure that they can carry out site management duties within the building sector.
When committing to begin the NVQ L6 Construction Site Management assessment course, you will be assessed against a set of knowledge and performance assessment criteria that have been identified by the National Occupational Standards relevant to the occupational area. The assessment is going to be carried out by a professional who is qualified, as well as experienced, to provide you help and support throughout the course till the achievement of your Diploma.

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.
Usually, it takes two site visits to cover all assessment criteria from the National Occupational Standards (NOS); however, this may differ depending on your ability and motivation to collaborate with the assessor.
As soon as you make an application for the NVQ Level 6 Construction Site Management assessment, you'll be appointed a dedicated assessor for your assessment. They will guide you through the course and help you achieve your Diploma in Construction Site 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 help and involvement, you will agree with your assessor on the appropriate assessment methods, such as discussion and examination of your product evidence (electronic records and work documentation) to gather the required set of proof of your skills in the most practical way, in order to verify your competence in the construction site management sector.
The NVQ site management course may take up to 6 months from start to finish, but the assessment turnaround time can vary and greatly depends upon your employment situation, motivation, and ability to supply the assessor with the needed information for the NVQ Level 6 Construction Site Management qualification.
Before starting the Construction Site 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.
