Construction NVQs

Take the next step in building your career with an NVQ

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. NVQs also benefit employers by helping them to develop and retain a trained, skilled workforce. 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.

NVQs during COVID-19 - Despite the unprecedented circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, please be assured that we continue to support our NVQ candidates throughout this lockdown period. Our team uses remote working processes to keep up with assessment submission and new candidate instructions.

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 confident 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 and support you online through your own tailored account in our e-portfolio system. If you need any additional support, you can contact us at any time, and we’ll get back to you within three working days.

As an NVQ Centre with Direct Claim Status, we have a robust quality assurance system so that you are awarded your NVQ qualification almost immediately upon completion. You’ll usually have your certificate within a month of completing the course, which is important if you want to apply for a new CSCS card or gain professional status with CIOB or CABE.

While 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 our qualifications and service quality.


The NVQs we offer

All of our NVQs attract credits within the Qualifications Credit Framework (QCF), meaning you can use them in the future towards other further or higher education courses.
