How can I get a Level 4 NVQ Diploma in Construction Site Supervision?
The assessment is based on four, five or potentially six assessment methods:

Direct observation – an assessor will come to observe you at work. Visits are scheduled according to your availability.

Written questionnaire – when we come to the first visit we will print your tutorials and you will have to answer in writing about 100 theoretical questions. This is what you will do during your time, once you are done you will send the answers to us and we will attach them to the protocol. We will provide guidance, but the answers must be yours.

Professional discussion – if you do not want to cover the theoretical questions in writing, we can organize a recorded discussion between you and the assessor where they will be covered. It lasts between 1 and 2 hours and should be planned a little in advance (the assessor will make a discussion plan, send it to you and then you will set a convenient day for both). This can take place on your site or at our office
