The CIOB announced in 2013 that anyone holding or studying for an Edexcel Level 7 NVQ Diploma in Construction Senior Management would no longer need to take a professional competence assessment in order to complete the CIOB’s Professional Review process and become chartered.
Candidates were able to present their Level 7 qualification certificate as evidence of meeting the Professional Review competence criteria along with a short application form detailing their CPD, training and commitment to the Institute’s code of conduct.
This shortened the vocational route to membership considerably helped those who were put off by the cost of higher education. This process also reduced duplication and bureaucracy in terms of the learners/applicants not having to produce the same or similar evidence again for CIOB membership.
CADUK have found that Learners at this Level have benefited greatly because of this initiative. The benefits are almost instantaneous in terms personal recognition and access to increased employment opportunities.
Since this announcement there have been further developments in terms of who has access to this Fast Track Route. As it stands the only learners who have access to the shorted professional review are those who have achieved the qualification through an Edexcel Pearson Approved Centre.
Learners who have gained the NVQ in Construction Senior Management through other Awarding Bodies such as CSkills, SQA and ABBE must have been assessed by a Member of the Institute of Building to Qualify for this Fast Track programme.
CSkills learners have until September 2017 to take advantage of this opportunity before it is withdrawn by the CIOB, as CSkills have declined to sign up to a recognition agreement.
CADUK are pleased to confirm that we are an Edexcel Pearson Approved Centre and all of our learners who have achieved the NVQ 7 have either gained MCIOB status or are working towards the designation with our full assistance.
We are very proud of the way we support our learners throughout the NVQ process and the journey through the Fast Track process to MCIOB.

Here are few reviews from some of our past learners who have achieved the Edexcel Level 7 NVQ Diploma in Construction Senior Management and are now MCIOB or working towards it:
Michael O’Byrne MCIOB (NVQ7 Achievement October 2015)
I recently completed the NVQ Level 7 in Senior Construction Management and immediately went on to get my CSCS Black Management Card. I then successfully applied for MCIOB, Chartered Construction Manager. The support and encouragement I got from Gary Pollard and his team was fantastic. This has opened up a lot of doors for me and I highly recommend using CAD UK.
Mark Mills MCIOB (NVQ7 Achievement April 2016)
I have recently completed a NVQ Level 7 in senior construction and found the support and help offered by CADUK to be invaluable they were there to assist and offer guidance throughout the entire process from initial profiling and the choosing of modules through to final assessment.
If you are looking to undertake a course I would highly recommend them.
Andrew Lee MCIOB (NVQ 7 Achievement March 2016)
Having recently completed the NVQ Level 7 in Senior Construction Management, I could not recommend CADUK highly enough.
The support throughout was excellent, even helping me to prepare for my MCIOB application.
Darren Allen FCIOB, MRICs (NVQ Achivement April 2014)
The opportunity to study with ‘CADUK’ provided me a platform for the future. CADUK are an organisation located within the UK who serve a global market with a local approach in competency based qualifications tailored to the construction industry.
The support from Day 1 from the staff and the mentors makes the journey a seamless one, the whole experience revolves around an individual’s effort to allocate the required time to complete the modules.If done successfully the period of obtaining the NVQ Level 7 can be a matter of weeks.
The NVQ Level 7 personally was two fold, fulfilling a long term goal to achieve Chartered Membership with the CIOB, and a platform to start a doctorate program in business administration. Keep up the good work!
Arash Noori FCIOB, Assoc RICs (NVQ7 Achievement Febuary 2014)
If you want recognition at the highest level and to become a Chartered Builder or Consultant via distant learning courses then the NVQ7 course is the perfect solution.
Gary and his team have helped my through out the whole course and boosted my confidence. I can not praise them enough. As a small building company owner this was an ideal route.
Once passed the Diploma I became an Associate member of RICS and have since become a Fellow of the Institute of Building. Fantastic result!
David Andrews w/t MCIOB (NVQ7 Achievement April 2016)
I have recently completed my NVQ Level 7 in Construction Senior Management and I cannot speak highly enough of all members of their team.
They provided me with an excellent service throughout and it was money well spent. I gained a vast amount of knowledge from each completed unit and it has already shown its benefits with instant career progression.
Thank you to you all at CADUK.
Murray Arnold w/t MCIOB (NVQ7 Achievement Febuary 2016)
In 2014 I contacted CADUK regarding personal development. Mr Pollard from CADUK was extremely helpful in giving me all the information that i required. CADUK were fast and professional in their mentor-ship. They encouraged me and pointed me in the right direction regarding my goals. This is the first step of my mature learning process and without CADUK supporting me i would not be where I am today. I am focused and now have my direction.
I thoroughly recommend others in the business to embark on professional recognition. You will hit a brick wall that is un-scaleable without it.
Thanks CADUK for all your support.
