Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Occupational Work Supervision
This qualification is designed for Occupational Work Supervisors (Gangers) i.e. those who contribute to the supervision of a particular trade, i.e formworkers, steelfixers, construction operatives, labourers etc. Please Click Here to ensure that your particular occupation is on the CSCS approved list of trades.
Please note: This is not a training course, this is an assessment of competence through the recognition of the skills, knowledge and experience the learner already has. This fast-track ‘Experienced Supervisor’ route is only suitable for established occupational works supervisors and not for those who are still developing their abilities in this occupation.
To fulfill their role effectively occupational works supervisors need organisational, supervisory and technical abilities, and need to be able to establish and develop and maintain good working relationships with people.
Prior to enrolment we require proof of competence against your trade (i.e a relevant NVQ certificate, typically at level 2, blue CSCS card or other evidence of experience of previous work in that trade). If you cannot produce a blue CSCS card/certificate etc as proof of competence we can provide you with an ‘expert witness testimony’ template for your manager to complete that confirms you have the pre-requisite skills in the trade that you are supervising.
