NVQ Level 6 is one of the most highly respected qualifications in the construction sector. The UK Government introduced the NVQ as a vocational equivalent to academic qualifications. The main attraction of the NVQ is that rather than learning afresh, you gain your qualification by compiling a portfolio of your achievements at work. This Site Management NVQ, therefore, assesses your managerial competence and the breadth of your technical skills.

The Level 6 Diploma is the vocational equivalent to a Bachelor’s Degree and as a result, will enhance your career. One of the most glittering prizes that having an NVQ Level 6 Diploma could win you is the CSCS Black Manager’s Card. The Black Card is highly sought after by employers because it acts as evidence that you have proven managerial success.

Since this Diploma is designed for experienced professionals, it made sense to provide a course that will fit around your work schedule. The College of Contract Management aims to provide you with a flexible and accessible way to get your NVQ Level 6. Our Assessors will visit your construction site in person while our administrators will provide you with live online, email or phone support for any guidance you may need. Above all, you can complete the course in your own time at a pace that suits you.
