Construction NVQ Courses: Everything You Need to Know

Thinking of expanding your skill set with an NVQ course? Here’s everything you need to know from the providers of NVQ courses London construction professionals recommend.

What are NVQs?

So, first of all – what are NVQs? Well, construction NVQs are the most widely recognised and sought-after qualifications in the construction sector. They’re very attractive to site managers, who make hiring decisions based on who has them and who does not. If you want to make an impact in the construction industry, you’ll need some under your belt. Fortunately for you, it’s really easy to find a course that’s suitable for you.

What to expect from the course

If you aren’t naturally academic and may be worried about obtaining a new qualification, then you can relax, as most construction NVQs don’t need you to study for a big exam at the end. Instead, you will be asked to complete some straightforward written work during your course. This really helps to take the pressure off, allowing you to perform to your best ability.

The construction sector is one of the few industries where you don’t need to be an academic big-hitter to achieve success. Taking an NVQ will allow you to obtain a recognised construction certification, even if you don’t have any other qualifications to your name. This makes them one of the most accessible kinds of vocational qualification that you will find. Best of all, you can complete your training while you work – allowing you to learn while you earn.
