National and Scottish Vocational Qualifications review

Posted: 1st August 2003

CIC is about to review and update the next phase of higher level National and Scottish Vocational Qualifications (NVQs/SVQs). The work involves the revision of qualifications covering Construction Contracting Levels 3 and 4 (which sets occupational standards for estimators, buyers, planners, surveyors and other technical support roles in general and specialist contracting areas); Construction Contracts Management Level 5 covering those who operate in senior roles in contracting; and Quantity Surveying Practice at Level 4 covering those operating in quantity surveying consultancy roles.

The qualifications are developed by industry practitioners in conjunction with CIC and other industry bodies. Experienced practitioners who would like to contribute voluntarily to helping improve the competence of those working in the industry, are invited to apply to join the Working Group (involves approx. 8 monthly meetings), or offer to provide feedback on the work as it develops.
