Once you have been enrolled.

You will be allocated an assessor.

The assessor will carry out an induction with you.

They will plan out how you will gather the required evidence to complete the NVQ. The assessor will arrange regular review meetings with you to keep track of your progress.

You will be evaluated on-site by a range of methods.

Such as observations, evidence generated from the workplace, professional discussion, witness testimonials and written questions.

The course structure features a group of mandatory units.

  • Manage teams in construction
  • Lead and participate in meetings
  • Provide ethical advice, judgement and service
  • Develop self and others

You must also select from the optional units to gain the required credits to pass. You can select units from two of the three groups below.

B1 – Project development

You will need to achieve all of the units to prove that you have the competency to obtain the NVQ. Once you have done so, the assessor will then review your work and provide any feedback. Once you have responded to the feedback, an IQA will then receive the portfolio. The IQA has the final decision whether the portfolio needs further evidence or if the qualification is complete.
