Frequently asked questions

Learners are required to respond to questions by collecting evidence from their workplace and providing a written or verbal statement against this evidence. In this statement they will essentially describe how they use this evidence in their work role and provide examples of projects and scenarios where the documentation was used. The assessor will review the evidence that has been collected to ensure that all the areas of the NVQ units have been covered.

All of our assessors for the Construction Site Management Level 6 NVQ are Members or Fellows of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB). They are highly experienced, qualified construction professionals who are in a position to add real value to your qualification.

This NVQ at Level 6 is comparable to a Bachelor Degree in terms of academic value.

Academic qualifications such as HNCs/HNDs/degrees are an opportunity to enter an industry.

The Professional Review involves the submission of an experience and competence report complete with supporting documentation such as a CV, organisation chart and CPD information.
