Course Details

Our qualification is accredited by the leading Awarding Body within the Sector and is delivered via the City & Guilds Learner Assist software programme meaning you have complete flexibility in your learning and uploading of evidence. We don’t cut corners to save pennies or make our lives easier. Our NVQs are of the highest quality and help you stand out from the crowd. 

To complete your Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Construction Management you’ll need to work alongside our tutor who’ll help you build a portfolio of evidence to prove your competence to operate as a Construction Site Manager. This may involve things such as providing Construction Phase Plans, RAMS or Toolbox Talks. You’ll have discussions with your Tutor to extract your knowledge not easily put down on paper or uploaded to a computer. Our Tutor will also come to visit you to see you working in a live environment. 

The Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Construction Management is a great qualification to have and is comparable in academic level to a bachelor’s degree. It’s a serious piece of work, but with the support of our experienced tutors and the City & Guilds Learner Assist software (and mobile App), it makes the qualification easily obtainable for almost all aspiring or current managers.

All NVQs are made up of a number of ‘building blocks’ called units. In academic terms, you need a certain amount of these units to build your NVQ. Some examples are provided below. The increased level (i.e. Level 6) of the NVQ Diploma in Construction Management basically means that for each piece of evidence provided to meet the unit criteria, there needs to be an explanation of why it’s being submitted and the rationale behind it. This is simply an explanatory note of your thinking behind the evidence. Your dedicated tutor will be able to support you all the way through this process.

We deliver hundreds of these qualifications per annum to all sorts of individuals and companies alike. If you have any questions, then don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Duration: Up to 6 Months 

I need my Black CSCS Card quickly:

Been working on-site and suddenly you need a Black CSCS Card? Or a long-term job’s finished and all new sites require a Black CSCS Card?

Look no further, we can help, and help quickly. Once you book on your Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Construction Management with us, we can register you with City & Guilds and get you booked on a local Managers Health, Safety and Environment CSCS Test. Once you have your CSCS Test pass and Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Construction Management registration, you can apply for a 2 year Red Temporary Experienced Manager CSCS Card, until you’ve completed your NVQ whereby you can get a 5 year Black CSCS Card.

What about my SSSTS or SMSTS?

There is some confusion within the industry about SSSTS and SMSTS and their role with CSCS Cards. Unfortunately, successfully completing your SMSTS doesn’t qualify you for a Black CSCS Card. You need the Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Construction Management.

However, not all is lost. Your SSSTS and SMSTS can be used toward your NVQ. At the outset of the NVQ, your tutor will undertake a Skills Scan to ascertain your current level of competence and map it against the units that make up the NVQ. All previous qualifications, NEBOSH, IOSH, SSSTS or SMSTS, for example, will count.

What You Learn on your Level 6 NVQ:

Your Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Construction Management will cover a number of units that come together to build your full NVQ qualification. Example units may be: 

  • Developing and maintaining good occupational working relationships in the workplace 
  • Establishing, implementing and maintaining systems for managing health, safety, and welfare in the workplace  
  • Ensuring that work activities and resources meet project work requirements in the workplace  
  • Monitoring construction related project activities in the workplace  
  • Controlling project progress against agreed quality standards in the workplace  
  • Planning the preparation of the site for the project or operation in the workplace  
  • Establishing project dimensional control criteria in the workplace  

As you can see, some of these are very general and multiple types of evidence can be provided to address each of them. You work with our tutor to ascertain what evidence is best suited to your circumstances.
