A construction NVQ is a benchmark qualification and is considered an industry standard that proves your competence and expertise to current and future employers.

Recognised Qualification 

A construction NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) is a nationally recognised qualification benchmarked against national performance work-based standards. It is beneficial for both current and future employers. It has a good reputation and helps with career progression.  

Construction NVQs are equivalent to nationally recognised qualifications. For instance, NVQ Level 2 is equivalent to a GCSE, NVQ Level 4 to a higher education certificate, and NVQ Level 6 is equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree. 

Skills Development 

Construction NVQ courses cover site management, plant operations, steel fixing, work supervision, roofing, cladding, etc. You can gain knowledge in theory and practical elements and progress your career. They are also different NVQ levels, and by working your way up those levels, you can increase your job position and responsibility.

NVQs are available at multiple range levels (1 to 7). Each level aims at a different experience level in the construction industry, from low to high. As an employer, you need to hire competent workers for the role. An NVQ level will help employers analyze your skillset and experience.
