Build your career with us
Take the next step in building your career in construction with us
A construction NVQ is a benchmark qualification that proves your occupational competence to current and future employers. Some NVQs lead to membership of professional organisations such as the Chartered Institute of Builders (CIOB) and the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE) as well as Gold or Black CSCS cards.
Around 8% of those who choose to take construction NVQs with NHBC are not house builders, reflecting the high regard in which our qualifications are held across the industry.
Level 3 and 6 construction contracting NVQs
Level 3 and 4 construction site supervision NVQs
Level 6 and 7 construction management NVQs
NHBC NVQs during COVID-19
Our team is still working to assess and support our NVQ candidates during this lockdown period. The team is working from home but using our remote working processes to keep up with assessment submissions and new candidate inductions.
Why study for an NVQ with us?
As a leading organisation within the industry, with the core purpose of raising the standards and quality of construction, you can be certain that our assessors have the experience, knowledge and skills to support you in your development.
We take great care to ensure that the level of NVQ you undertake is right for you, setting you up for success right from the start. Your assessor will have face to face or remote meetings with you every 8-10 weeks during the assessment process as well as supporting you online through our e-portfolio system. You can contact us at any time and be sure of a response within 3 working days.
As an NVQ Centre with Direct Claim Status we can award your NVQ qualification almost immediately on completion. You’ll usually have your certificate within a month of completion which is important if you want to apply for a new CSCS card or gain professional status with CIOB or CABE.
Whilst we’re known for our work within the house-building sector, some of our candidates work within the wider construction industry which is testament to the quality of our qualifications and service.
The NVQs we offer
All of our NVQs attract credits within the Qualifications Credit Framework (QCF), meaning they can be used in the future towards other further or higher education courses.
