How are these qualifications assessed?

We deliver NVQs 6 & 7 through our online assessment system. Many of our assessors at Level 6 & 7 are Members of The Chartered Institute of Building and they will guide you through the process.

Most of our qualifications are assessed through a ‘discussion style’ assessment which involves no written work at all and the whole process is conducted online (typically via Zoom meetings). r. We provide support for 12 months through this online route, although generally these qualifications are easily achievable in 1-3 months.
