Frequently Asked Questions

Our Construction Supervisory NVQs can be delivered either online through our unique and simple to use ePortfolio system or on-site through our unique ‘experienced supervisor’ fast-track on-site assessment.

Candidates will be assessed by one of our industry specialist assessors.

The duration of a Supervisory NVQ through our online ePortfolio assessment route is entirely down to the learner’s own motivation. We provide support for one year, however these Construction Supervisory qualifications are realistically achievable within 1–3 months.

We also offer an on-site fast-track ‘experienced supervisor’ route to the CSCS Gold card. See below for details.

Our ‘experienced supervisor’ fast-track assessment route involves our assessor coming to site to conduct the assessment, ensuring that the qualification is achieved in the same day.

This route is particularly beneficial for those whose CSCS cards need urgent renewal or upgrade.

Please note that this assessment route is only suitable for established occupational works supervisors and not for those who are still developing their abilities in this occupation.

No. NVQs aren’t about how good you are at exams, they are about how good you are at work. NVQs never involve written tests, they don’t involve trick questions – they are designed to let your skills, knowledge and experience shine through in practical ways.

NVQs relate to the real world and many certificate holders and their employers will tell you that this is their main advantage. NVQs are not about going back to school. They are about going where you want to go in your career.

NVQs have no formal entry requirements,  however potential candidates must be able to demonstrate to us that they have the skills, knowledge and experience required in order to achieve the qualification. This is confirmed through our profiling process. We will never enrol any learner onto an NVQ program unless we are sure that the qualification is actually achievable.

The Red Experienced Technical, Supervisor or Manager CSCS card is issued on a temporary basis, while a Construction related NVQ is being achieved. It is available to Supervisors and Managers with on the job experience (normally at least one year in the last three). The card is valid for three years and cannot be renewed.

To access this card, learners must first register and enrol on a qualifying NVQ. CADUK can provide learners that require this temporary CSCS card with the required proof of Awarding Body registration and accompanying documentation to enable them to apply.
