27 November 2013

Three of our construction NVQs are due to be updated from January 2014, based on new National Occupational Standards introduced by the Sector Skills Council.

The qualifications are:

  • 500/9292/3 Pearson Edexcel Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Construction Contracting Operations (QCF)
  • 500/9331/9 Pearson Edexcel Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Built Environment Design (QCF)
  • 500/9453/1 Pearson Edexcel Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Built Environment Design Management (QCF).

This will result in the replacement of existing units with new versions on the QCF.

However, there is likely to be a gap in availability between the closure of the old qualifications and the launch of new versions. We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause and are taking steps to launch the new versions as early as we can in 2014.

Candidates on existing programmes registered before 31 December 2013 can still be certificated for a period of three years on the current qualifications.
