How will I complete the NVQ Level 7 Construction Senior Management qualification?

Unlike most qualifications this one will take place mainly at work

  • The process begins with a profiling questionnaire to make sure you are enrolling on the right qualification for you
  • You will put together proof of your experience and knowledge, in the form of work related documents – you can do this in Dropbox, by email or in a file – whichever works best for you
  • An Assessor will visit you to see you in your working environment and to review your portfolio of evidence – we have Assessors located across the country so we can come to wherever you’re working in mainland England
  • Your knowledge of your work role is captured through either written questions and answers or professional discussion with your Assessor – this is often the preferred route as it can be completed in a day
