TESTIMONIALS AND CASE STUDIES FROM REAL PEOPLE

We’ve successfully delivered over 1000 NVQs in the last seven years. We offer excellent value for money compared to colleges and other training providers. The majority of our NVQ assessors have at least 10 years of experience in the industry. We work fast – we’ll aim to complete your level 2 NVQ in 8-12 weeks. We offer flexible payment. We won’t ask for the final 50% of the fee until you’ve finished the NVQ.

An NVQ qualification is recognition that you’ve reached a certain level of expertise in your trade, and also demonstrates your ability to work safely too. Together with a CSCS Card, your NVQ validates your skill and experience in the eyes of people who’ve never seen you work such as potential employers, site managers or new clients.

Gaining your NVQ via the on-site assessment and training route (OSAT) consists of two parts – knowledge and practical.

The practical side of the qualification involves building a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate that your skills meet the requirements of the NVQ. Evidence can be obtained in several ways including on-site observations, photographs, witness testimonies, 1-to-1 professional discussions and copies of company documentation (e.g. site induction records, risk assessments etc). Your NVQ assessor will advise you on the best ways to collect this evidence.

The knowledge side of the qualification involves answering a series of questions relating to your specific trade and health & safety. These can be handwritten or typed on a word processor. Your assessor will be available by phone and email to provide support and guidance.

When all evidence has been collected, your assessor will submit your portfolio for verification. You will receive your NVQ certificate shortly after and can then apply for your CSCS Card.

Onsite NVQ assessment is for construction workers who meet the recognised occupational standards. The qualification is a validation of your skills and experience. The Onsite Assessment and Training (OSAT) route allows you to achieve your NVQ through workplace assessment at your own speed. This qualification is a mandatory requirement in gaining your CSCS Skilled Worker card.

We deliver our construction NVQs through the Onsite Assessment (OSAT) route. We will assign you an NVQ assessor who will work with you for the duration of the course as you build a portfolio of evidence.

Types of evidence may include:

  • An onsite observation while you work, carried out by your assessor in your workplace
  • Photographs or videos of you working
  • References, employer endorsements or witness testimonies verifying your work in construction
  • Detailed job logs of work you have completed
  • A recorded professional discussion with your assessor either face-to-face or over the telephone
  • Coursework covering ‘theory’ and construction health and safety

Once your assessor is satisfied you have submitted sufficient evidence, our internal verification team will check your portfolio. They will then claim your NVQ certificate with the awarding body.

Construction workers in Greater Manchester, Lancashire and the Sheffield City Region may be eligible for government funding. Please contact us so we can check your eligibility. If you live or work outside these regions, we offer affordable self-funded assessment payable in two parts – 50% upfront and 50% on completion.

Please contact us to discuss funding and costs.

Although it can take up to six months or more to achieve their NVQ, we find that most complete Level 2 in two to three months, and Level 3 in three to four months. Ultimately, the qualification will fit around your professional and personal commitments. Work towards it at a speed you feel comfortable.

How long does it take and how to apply?

To check your eligibility and get your application started, please fill out the contact form.

A level 2 NVQ taken through the onsite assessment route usually takes between 8 and 12 weeks to complete. If you require a CSCS Card immediately, you can apply for the Experienced Worker Card (temporary card) while you are doing your qualification.

NVQ assessment for eligible candidates will be co-funded by the European Social Fund and the Education & Skills Funding Agency. This service is provided through the Skills Support programme and The Growth Company.

We’ll get in touch with you within one working day. Alternatively, you can call us on 01942 673047 or email us at info@dmrltd.co.uk

Please act fast as funding is limited and we will provide this service on a first-come, first-served basis.
