We don't like to pressure any candidates into time constraints, however, we also understand achieving your NVQ is a career move and not something you want disrupting your working day. On agreement to proceed with your Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Construction Occupational Work Supervision, one of our assessors will be in touch to go over what they need to start gathering evidence and make the NVQ process as quick as possible.

If the assessor can gain as much information as quick as possible and is able to carry out site visits for observation the NVQ can be achieved quickly. However, should the assessor have any trouble getting onto the site because of a sensitive project or health & safety restrictions this can slow the process down. Be sure to discuss this with your assessor when we contact you so you can both find the best solution moving forward.

Remember, this NVQ can be achieved quickly as long as you communicate with your assessor and provide what's needed for your evidence building. You will both agree on an estimated end date and have a clear target to achieve.
