Why You Should Take A Level 6 or 7 NVQ

Opinion On A Level 6 or 7 NVQ

Many experienced construction managers who have earned strong educational credentials in construction management, such as HNCs, HNDs, and degrees, are disregarding the notion of completing a Level 6 or 7  NVQ because they believe their academic achievements are considerably more valuable. Many say that obtaining their academic degrees took more than three years, that they paid an exorbitant amount of money, that they worked long hours, that they attended seminars and lectures, and that they took arduous examinations in the quest of academic brilliance.

This might be accurate, but ignoring the advantages of pursuing a competence-based assessment certification when one is available at level 6 or 7 may be detrimental in terms of professional growth and job possibilities. This is especially true in the construction sector, where many people believe that competency-based certifications are more valuable than academic credentials. Academic credentials, like degrees, provide an option to enter the construction business, and while achieving such a certification is admirable, an individual may get a degree without ever setting foot on a construction site.

What Is A Construction NVQ?

In its building-related role, a Construction NVQ is a certification used to indicate a person’s competence. From the information they have given, an assessor may evaluate the skill of the trainee to do their job. Construction NVQs are available from levels 2-7, depending on the qualification chosen. However, we are going to focus on a level 6 or 7 NVQ.

Black CSCS Card

A Black CSCS card, for instance, cannot be obtained with an academic qualification such as a degree. The Black CSCS card is connected to a level 6 or 7 NVQ, demonstrating professional competency and confirming a person’s abilities, understanding, and experience earned over time in an authentic construction setting. Individuals with educational achievements, on the other hand, are eligible to register for a White AQP (Academically Qualified Persons) CSCS card.

Similarly, we feel that construction managers who initially earned academic credentials before gaining real-world experience should seize the chance to be appreciated for their abilities. Competence-based evaluation credentials enhance academic credentials and significantly improve an individual’s job prospects.
