NVQ Level 6 Construction Site Management

For Site Managers looking for their Black CSCS card as quickly as possible.


Need your Black CSCS Card within 8 weeks?  

Our NVQ Level 6 Construction Site Management qualification is aimed at experienced Site Managers.  Our unique approach can help you complete in as little as eight weeks.  Do you have the right amount of experience, but not the right qualification, then this route is ideal for you.  Compass have helped hundreds of Site Managers get their Black CSCS card in as little as 8 weeks.

What does the NVQ Level 6 Construction Site Management qualification entail?

Unlike most qualifications, the NVQ takes place mainly at work  and you can decide how long it takes you to complete.  Most experienced Managers complete it within as little as 2 to 3 months.

  • You will demonstrate your performance by providing documentary evidence of you carrying out the role of a Site Manager.  Either online, by email or in a hard copy file.  We give you a list of which documents you need to provide.
  • An Assessor will come and visit you on site.  This is so he can see you in action and review your  evidence with you.  Our Assessors are located across the country so work location isn’t a problem.
  • Your knowledge of site management is captured through either written questions and answers or a professional discussion with your Assessor.  A mixture of both is often the preferred route.

How to enrol


You can call us or email us at for information on how to enrol.  Our standard rate is £1800 including vat.

What will I need for the course?

To fast track on the NVQ Level 6 Construction Site Management Diploma, you ideally need to have at least 2 years Site Management experience and be in a Site Manager job role when the Assessor comes to see you.  If you have less experience it may take you longer to complete, but you could still enrol.

  • The course provides you with the opportunity to prove your skills and knowledge even if you have no other formal qualifications.
  • Achieved without attending a College or taking an exam.
  • It can be completed in a relatively short period of time.
