What are NVQs
Construction NVQs are the recognised benchmark qualification for proving occupational competence in the construction industry. They are a ‘competence-based’ qualification, which means you learn practical, work-related tasks designed to help you develop the skills and knowledge to do a job effectively and comply with the National Occupational Standards.
How it works
NVQs are assessed on practical assignments and a portfolio of evidence that you build up. One of our qualified assessor will observe you and question you about the work you do and test your knowledge and understanding as well as your performance.
On successful completion of your NVQ, you will be eligible to apply for a Blue/Gold/Black CSCS card, according to the level of your NVQ and also lead to membership of professional organisations such as the Chartered Institute of Builders (CIOB) and the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE).
