Would I benefit from an NVQ 7 in Construction Senior Management if I already have a Degree

Managers in the construction industry who have achieved high level academic qualifications in construction management such as  Degrees are not doing an National Vocational Qualification at level 7 because they feel that their academic achievements have far more value.

Many argue that it took over 3 years to achieve their academic qualifications in the pursuit of academic excellence.

This is true, but to ignore the benefits of undertaking a competence based assessment qualification (NVQ) when you have access to one (at 7) could be counterproductive in terms of professional development and access to work opportunities.  Academic qualifications such as degrees are an opportunity to enter an industry at a high level without having set foot on a construction site.

The Black CSCS card is linked to a Level 7 NVQ which demonstrates occupational competence and confirms the skills, knowledge and experience of an individual that has been gained over time in a real-world construction environment. 

Don’t forget your development doesn’t finish at the start of your career. Give CADUK a call on 01952287366

Route to the Black CSCS Card and MCIOB for Construction Managers

Construction Managers, Project Managers, Contracts and Production Managers, Commercial Managers, Operations Directors, Property Managers, and Facilities Managers can access the Black CSCS card and become Chartered with The Chartered Institute of Building, through the achievement of the Level 7 NVQ Diploma in Construction Senior Management, a qualification comparable to a Masters Degree in terms of academic value.

This qualification is the highest-level competence-based qualification in construction and is only accessible to established, experienced, senior managers. It is not suitable for those still developing their abilities in construction management.

This qualification is assessed entirely through ‘professional discussion’ and involves no classroom-based element or even any written work.

The first stage of the process requires you to collect various workplace documents (evidence) together and upload them to our online ePortfolio system ready for your MCIOB/FCIOB assessor to review. These documents will be used to prompt the professional discussion and will include things such as a program, phase plan, project risk register, scope of works, health and safety policy, emails, minutes of meetings, etc. .

Once the assessor has ‘approved’ your documentation (evidence) the next stage of the process is to conduct the professional discussion, which will be carried out online via Zoom.

During this discussion the assessor will select various key items of your submitted evidence and will ask you to describe the working process of the document in relation to the questions.

In essence, the assessor is asking you to describe in detail how you carry out your role, how the documentation ties-in with that process, and to provide real-life examples of projects where that process has been implemented. There are no ‘theory-based’ questions, the assessor doesn’t want to know how you ‘would’ do X, Y & Z, they want to know how you ‘did’ it.

Once the professional discussions are finished, the NVQ process is complete and you can apply for the Black ‘Manager’ CSCS card and get the ball rolling on your “fast-track” application to become Chartered with The CIOB.

Since this qualification is assessed through a discussion-based assessment where candidates can expect to be ‘challenged’ by a construction specialist NVQ assessor (all of our Level 7 assessors are industry experts and Memebers/Fellows of The CIOB), it is therefore only suitable for construction managers with a minimum of 5 years’ experience in the role, whom are very confident in their abilities.

Below are a selection of reviews from some of our recent learners that have achieved the Pearson/Edexcel Level 7 NVQ Diploma in Construction Senior Management and are now either MCIOB or working towards it:

Kevin Beaver 

“The NVQ7 in Construction Senior Management is a great programme and allows you to complete at your own pace.

The support provided by CADUK, Gary, Nick and David was superb. I thoroughly enjoyed the studying and found it to be a great learning experience.

Thoroughly recommend it to anyone that has not gone the BSc route academically and looking to gain chartered status with CIOB!”

Adam Powell 

“I have just achieved my NVQ 7 in Construction Senior Management with CADUK. Once I managed to set aside structured time to undertake this NVQ I completed it in approx. 2 months. From the moment I contacted them based on Gary’s enthusiasm and passion I knew this was the provider for me.

I could not recommend a provider higher. Great support, advice & service from start to finish. Thank you Gary, Nick & of course John.”

Luke Baker  

“I have recently completed my NVQ L7 Senior Construction Management, from my initial call to Gary at CADUK, to receiving my certificate I found the team to be professional throughout.

Many thanks to Gary, Martyn and Nick for the support though the process.”

Tom Messenger 

“CADUK Provided me with the facility and support I needed to get the correct qualification to further my career.

After a brief discussion with Gary, he gave me the belief that I would be able to complete the Level 7 NVQ in Construction Senior Management. Once I started the course it took me 6 months to complete, based on 2 evening sessions per week and a morning at weekends. It could be done quicker but I was able to allocate the times that suited my life and my work without having a detrimental effect on either.

My assessor was David and I cannot speak highly enough of him. I now have my Black CSCS card, have completed my Professional review and await approval for MCIOB status”

Shaun Bull 

“My experience with CADUK has been brilliant, I received great support and guidance throughout the learning process and constructive feedback on the assessments. A very Professional organisation that I would highly recommend for any of your Construction skill competence and assessment needs!”

Andrew Parkes  

“I had been searching for a higher level qualification to enhance my career prospects for some time when I came across the CADUK website and saw the range of courses they offer.

I contacted CADUK to discuss my options and from that point on the team at CADUK have been extremely helpful. Gary guided me through the application process and was a great source of help and motivation throughout the course, always available to offer advice. Nick provided support in the use of the easy to use online submission system and always offered prompt advice in the event of any technical issues. Last but not least John my assessor who provided positive, helpful feedback throughout the assessment process and challenged me to reflect on my experience and produce the best possible submissions.

I have now completed the Pearson Edexcel NVQ Level 7 diploma in construction senior management delivered by CADUK and would highly recommend both the course and CADUK to anyone considering undertaking a qualification of this type”

Rob Bazzant

They are a first class organisation who’s knowledge and guidance was invaluable to me in achieving my qualification.

Thanks to the whole team at CADUK.”

Many construction managers mistakenly believe that because the Level 7 NVQ Diploma is broadly equivalent to a Masters Degree and they don’t work for a main contractor that they aren’t able to achieve it. In our experience in the majority of circumstances this is not the case.
