Purpose of this qualification

The primary purpose of this qualification is to develop and confirm the learner’s occupational competence at a managerial level within the construction industry. As a work-related, competence-based qualification it will provide confirmation to employers and industry managers, and card schemes, that learners have the skills and knowledge needed to meet the nationally-recognised standard to carry out a role at a managerial level within the construction industry.

The qualification is assessed by completing a portfolio of evidence which details what learners have completed at work through a variety of evidence such as observation, professional discussion, witness testimony and supporting documentary evidence. The assessor can work alongside the learner to confirm that they have met the requirements of the qualification and that they are therefore competent in their role.

Competence is displayed through the assessor observing the learner. The learner will demonstrate that they carry out their normal work activities competently and to the industry standard, and that they comply with currently legislation and company procedures. The assessment process will ensure that the learner can complete the tasks that they have been directed to undertake and that they can interpret the instructions correctly. They will demonstrate that they can select the appropriate resources for the task. They will also demonstrate that they can complete tasks within the given timescales and specifications.
