Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Senior Site Inspection

Pearson Edexcel Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Senior Site Inspection

This qualification is designed for site inspectors, architectural inspectors and quality inspectors – i.e. those managers who carry out the role of Clerk of Works.

The Clerk of Works ensures value for money for the client rather than the contractor and is achieved through rigorous and detailed inspection of materials and workmanship throughout the building process.

These people will have responsibility for monitoring project quality and managing project progress and handover in construction.

What are the benefits of this Level 6 NVQ?

Frequently asked questions

All of our assessors for the Senior Site Inspection NVQ at Level 6 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.

We carefully select a particular assessor for each individual learner to ensure that your workplace experiences are aligned so the feedback and guidance provided is useful, relevant and rewarding.

Your assessor will provide advice and feedback on request via phone, Skype, email and through our ePortfolio system.

Achievement of this level 6 NVQ is entirely down to the learner’s own motivation.

We provide support for a period of 12 months, however this qualification is realistically achievable within 1-3 months.

At NVQ Level 6 (i.e Managerial level) an on-site observation only has limited value. On-site observation can be time consuming and costly.

CADUK can provide on-site assessment at this level if this is deemed to be a necessary exercise, although generally we carry out the assessment interactively online though our bespoke ePortfolio system.

Learners are required to respond to criteria by collating evidence which occurs naturally within their work to demonstrate particular skills. The assessor will go through the evidence that has been collected to ensure that all the areas of the NVQ have been covered.

This online process enables us to provide much better individual support than traditional on-site support methods, allowing the individual the opportunity to achieve the qualification in a much shorter time frame, and from any internet connected computer anywhere in the world.

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.

Competence-based qualifications however are far more relevant to the experienced construction manager because they provide recognition of skills, knowledge, experience and confidence that has already been developed over time in the industry.

This Level 6 NVQ enables you to apply for Chartered Membership with the CIOB through the Full Professional Review. Generally, applicants will need at least 3 years’ experience at a management level.

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.

A candidate may be referred for interview if the application does not demonstrate a full understanding of and application of the competences.

Achievement of this Level 6 NVQ enables individuals to apply for professional status with the following organisations:

Once enrolled onto this qualification you will be eligible to apply for the Red Experienced Technical, Supervisor or Manager CSCS card right away. This card is issued on a temporary basis and demonstrates that you are working towards an NVQ.

Once the NVQ has been completed the Red CSCS card can be upgraded to the CSCS Black Card.

NVQs are UK regulated qualifications, they are valid for life and do not expire.

CADUK are an Award Winning NVQ centre that have delivered over 1000 construction-related NVQs.

The online ePortfolio system that we developed ourselves was recently recognised at the Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) Star Awards at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow for our “unique approach to delivering qualifications”.

We strongly believe that the true value of an NVQ is only realised when the qualification has been earned. Experienced people can gain so much by actually going on a journey of self reflective practice, empowering themselves with knowledge by taking ownership of their qualification, then being judged and challenged honestly and professionally by an industry expert.
