  • Knowledge
  • Methods

    The NVQ will be assessed over approximately six on-site assessments whilst the candidate carries out their day to day work. Evidence will be collected in the form of photographs, method statements and professional discussions by your dedicated Assessor.

  • Additional Info

    Once the candidate is registered, after the profile and induction visit, they will be able to apply for a one year trade CSCS card extension.

    Once the delegate has completed their NVQ, their card will then last five years but is then simply renewed by a Construction Skills touch screen health and safety test and will run for a further five years.

    A CITB grant from £650 to £793 is available for companies registered with the Construction Industry Training Board.

    Delegates should inform their trainer if they have any serious health issues, physical problems, special considerations or are taking any medication which may create difficulties in undertaking elements of this NVQ assessment.


    The duration of a Level 6 NVQ varies depending on the candidate, their level of experience and the work they are undertaking. We advise that the majority of NVQ Level 6's are completed between 9 and 12 months from induction.
