L5, L6 & L7 NVQ's

A selection of L5, L6 & L7 NVQ’s available through Workforce Skills Support are detailed below.

NVQ Level 5 Construction, NVQ Level 6 Construction, NVQ Level 7 Construction are ideal for those who have years of experience but no formal qualifications.

Whilst at their place of work, individuals will be visited by their assessor who will guide them through each part of the process, observe them working and provide the highest levels of support until they complete their qualification. Ideal for individuals and employers needing to avoid downtime and days away from site.

​Once the NVQ Level 5 Construction, NVQ Level 6 Construction or NVQ Level 7 Construction is achieved, you can apply for the CSCS Black Managers card. This card is valid for 5 years.

For experienced Managers with recent job experience, a red experienced managers card can be issued on a temporary basis whilst a related construction NVQ is being achieved.

​​If you are unsure what cards are available at each stage, please contact Workforce Skills Support for further information and advice.
