Working as a Site Manager can be a busy role, and balancing a qualification around it can be challenging.
Luckily the format of an NVQ is highly flexible and can be completed in your own time. You can organise gathering evidence and communications with your assessor around your workload.
The qualification will assess your competence in your current job role. Therefore you must be currently working as a Construction Site Manager or in a role at the same level.
You are also required to be aged 16 or above to enrol.
If we find that you are unsuitable for the qualification, we will find another one that fits your credentials.
You can complete the Site Manager qualification online via our ePortfolio system, your Assessor can arrange video calls with you or can come and visit you in your workplace depending on your location.
