Due to a variety of factors i.e. new industry regulations (CDM), client expectations, Brexit, industry downturn and increased competition from those who have benefited from a university education, a large number of experienced Construction Managers are missing out on work opportunities in the UK and abroad. This is not because of a lack of skills, knowledge and experience, but simply because they don’t have the relevant managerial qualifications, professional recognition and industry accreditation that reflects their true standing in the industry. Many construction managers are not aware of the importance of having qualifications etc until they find themselves out of work. This however, is not best time to do something about the situation for a variety of reasons.
CADUK have identified that the achievement of the Pearson Edexcel Level 7 NVQ Diploma in Construction Senior Management as the qualification that can take these experienced construction managers from ‘Zero to Hero’ in matter of a few months.
The Pearson Edexcel Level 7 NVQ Diploma in Construction Senior Management is designed for all those practitioners in the construction sector who are working for Main Contractors and SMEs in a policy-making, director or senior management capacity. These include contracts, production and commercial managers, operations directors of smaller construction companies, property and facilities managers and specialist construction managers; as well as those in Construction Project Management – i.e. those who oversee projects from inception to decommissioning, who advise stakeholders and who form and lead project delivery teams.
All they have to do is reflect on their own professional practice and provide workplace evidence of how they carry out their occupational role.
Within a few months they could
- Become a Member of the Chartered Institute of Building (Chartered Construction Manager)
