NVQ Level 6 in Construction Contracting Operations Management course content

Once you have enrolled, you will be assigned an assessor. The assessor will work with you to develop a portfolio throughout the qualification.

The assessor will arrange either an on-site or remote induction; in which they will put together a plan of how you can collect all the evidence needed to complete the NVQ. They will also schedule in regular review meetings to ensure that you are keeping on track.

You will be assessed on-site through a range of methods, such as written questions, observations, witness testimonials, evidence generated from the workplace and professional discussion.

You will need to provide evidence of:

  • Maintain health, safety and welfare systems in construction
  • Manage the performance of teams and individuals
  • Chair meetings and take decisions
  • Enhance working relationships

You will also have a choice of pathways in which you can choose to go down. Each pathway has it’s own mandatory and optional units that you need to complete.

For more information on the content of the qualification, please contact us here.

To pass the NVQ, you must show that you are competent in your job role by providing the required evidence for each unit. The assessor will then review their evidence and provide any feedback. Once you have addressed the feedback, the portfolio will then go to the IQA. The IQA will have the final decision on whether the qualification is complete or if any additional evidence is needed.

How long is a Construction Contracting Operations Management NVQ?

The qualification duration relies on how quickly you can provide the evidence for each of your units and complete the NVQ.

The NVQ has no set time limit and can be completed at a pace that suits you. The learners who finish the qualification quicker tend to have evidence prepared already and can therefore sign of units quickly.

Working in a management role can be very busy, and managing a qualification alongside that can be hard. If this is the case, you can arrange your call, evidence gathering and assessments around your workload. The NVQ format is very flexible.

Why should I take this course?

Construction Managers who specialise in general construction contracting operations management, who intend to gain the Black CSCS Card or Manager Card, should enrol onto this course. The Manager Card is used to show that you have a high level of skill and competency as a construction manager.

The Black Card and Level 6 NVQ are a nationally recognised qualification. They are expected in those who manage construction works and are something employers look for when recruiting.

The qualification will also hold a lot of weight internally, the NVQ will show to the team that you are managing, that you know the role and are highly capable.

NVQ Level 6 Construction Contracting Operations Management entry requirements

To enrol onto the NVQ, you must be 19 or above and be working in a construction managerial role. You cannot complete the NVQ if you are not conducting a role in construction contracting operations management or similar.

Before enrolling our learners, we like to check that you are suitable for the qualification. If you aren’t deemed suitable for the NVQ, we will advise you on possible alternatives that you can complete instead.

Where can I complete this course?

Our National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) can be completed by learners across the country. NVQs are available to book directly online via our website or over the phone with one of our advisors.

The benefit of an NVQ is that it can be completed mostly by you, in your own workplace. This level of NVQ also requires minimal face-to-face interaction with your assessor. You can communicate with them remotely, via a video call, phone call or email, to complete most of your units. Any remaining units will be completed at your workplace, face-to-face.

Is this course accredited?

This course can be ProQual or GQA accredited.

Both awarding bodies offer vocational courses for individuals in the construction sector. Each NVQ is developed in line with the industry’s requirements and are continually updated so that they remain relevant and useful.

Further development

Upon completion of the NVQ, you will receive an NVQ certificate. You will also be able to apply for the Black CSCS Card or Manager Card. This card will show you have the relevant knowledge to be conducting your role.

A qualification that goes alongside the Level 6 would be the SMSTS course. This course covers the health & safety responsibilities of a site manager so that you can work safely and legally.

The next step for a Site Manager would be to become a Senior Site Manager. A recommended qualification would be NVQ Level 7 in Construction Senior Management.

The NEBOSH Construction Certificate would be the right direction to go for a career in health & safety.

Is this course CITB Grant claimable?

Yes, CITB registered companies can claim £600 grant per leaner. To claim the grant, the company must make a manual claim itself. Find out how to claim here.
