CADUK are working in collaboration with Pearson/Edexcel on an exclusive Pilot scheme designed to allow Advanced access to the Level 7 NVQ in Construction Senior Management for experienced construction professionals with a substantial body of knowledge which is at the forefront of their professional practice.

Pearson have encouraged CADUK to be as bold as possible to ensure that Senior practitioners in the industry who clearly work at level 8 in Construction Management (i.e – Doctorate/Director level) have a route to the Level 7 NVQ that is more appropriate to their status within the industry. The goal of this scheme is to reward the achievements of established, senior construction professionals (directors) by reducing the amount of unnecessary assessment and time it currently takes to achieve the qualification.

This “Advanced route” will also dramatically reduce the time it currently takes to achieve professional status with the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB). All CADUK NVQ assessors on the advanced pilot scheme will themselves be Fellows of the Chartered Institute of Building.

This pilot scheme is only accessible to Senior Construction Managers who feel they have the following attributes:

1. The ability to demonstrate that they have the skills necessary to exercise personal responsibility and largely autonomous initiative in complex and unpredictable situations in professional environments.

2. The ability to make informed judgements on complex issues in specialist fields and an innovative approach to tackling and solving problems, often in the absence of complete data.

3. The general ability to conceptualise, design and implement a project at the forefront of their discipline, and to adjust the project design in the light of unforeseen problems.

4. The ability to communicate their ideas and conclusions clearly and effectively to specialist and non-specialist audiences.

If you would like to be considered for this Advanced Pilot scheme, please contact us on (01952) 292 005 or send us an enquiry through our web site and we will get back to you.

Please note: Those Construction Managers who are not currently at director/doctorate level (and therefore do not fit the criteria of this pilot scheme) can still access the NVQ Level 7 in Construction Senior Management through our usual assessment process.
