NVQ Level 6 - Senior Site Inspection Diploma (SSI6)

CADUK provide access to the Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Senior Site Inspection via an online (ePortfolio) assessment route. This is a competence-based assessment of the skills, knowledge, and experience that an individual has already gained over time, working as a Clerk of Works (or similar) in a real construction environment.

This bespoke assessment process is primarily discussion-based and involves no written work and no time off work. Initially, candidates will be required to upload evidence of their work activities via our online portal (evidence will include minutes of meetings, emails, photographs, videos, and workplace documents such as quality inspection reports, non-conformance reports, compliance checklists, corrective action plans, snagging lists, etc).

Once the evidence has been validated by an assessor, the units/criteria of the qualification will be covered via a series of recorded ‘professional discussions’ online via Zoom. During these discussions, candidates will describe how they carry out their role in detail, reflecting on their own practice, providing real examples, and explaining the link between the activity and the workplace evidence that has been submitted.

CADUK provide support for a period of 12 months, although completion of this NVQ is realistically achievable within 1-3 months.

On completion of this NVQ, candidates will have the opportunity to apply for ICWCI membership and a Black (Manager) CSCS card.

The cost of this qualification is £1850 + VAT.

CADUK are a CITB Approved Training Organisation (ATO) which enables CITB registered companies to claim £1500 back on completion of this NVQ through the short qualification grant scheme.

The NEC: ECC Supervisor Accreditation is designed for aspiring supervisors, clerk of works, construction inspectors and architectural technicians. These roles are essential in the impartial assessment of construction and require experience in many facets of the building trade. If you’re looking to fulfil the role of Supervisor on an NEC3 or NEC4 ECC project, this is a chance to be recognised by employers and give yourself the unique opportunity to set yourself apart from your industry peers.

The supervisor in an NEC ECC project operates independently of the project manager. They monitor, test and defect, and check compliance with the Works Information. Therefore, it is essential the supervisor is sufficiently experienced. Throughout the course, the NEC experts leading the training will define the role and duties that a supervisor has and explain how to be an effective supervisor.

The two-day training provides a highly interactive, hands on session with emphasis on scenario planning and teaching through case studies to equip delegates with skills necessary to be able to fulfil the supervisor role for an NEC project. Training is available for both NEC3 and NEC4 Supervisor Accreditation pathways.

Successful completion of the programme will give you the option to be listed on the Register of Accredited Professionals, held by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). The accreditation can also be used as an exempting qualification towards the membership of Institute of Clerks of Works and Construction Inspectorate (ICWCI). Existing members of ICWCI are eligible for a 5% discount off the NEC ECC Supervisor Accreditations.
