NVQ Level 6 Diploma in Construction Site Management Building and Civil Engineering

The Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Construction Site Management Building is designed for individuals who specialize in planning the preparation of site and work activities and planning the lifting activities using cranes and/or lifting equipment. It provides a nationally recognized qualification that demonstrates their competence in this area. The qualification is regulated by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) and provides a progression route to discipline-related qualifications.

Assessment Process – 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 for the first visit we will print your units and you will have to answer in writing about 100-150 theoretical questions. You will do this in your time, once you have finished you will send the answers to us and we will attach them to the portfolio. We will give you 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 takes between 1-2 hours and should be planned a little in advance (the assessor will make a plan of the discussions, will send it to you and then you will set a convenient day for both of you). This can take place at your site or at our office.
