Level 3 Construction NVQs are nationally recognised qualifications that focus on developing the competencies required for various roles within the construction industry. These qualifications offer a practical approach to learning, allowing individuals to showcase their skills through on-site assessments and portfolio submissions. Level 3 NVQs are an excellent choice for those seeking to enhance their career prospects or progress to higher-level qualifications.


Course Structure

The structure of Level 3 Construction NVQs may vary depending on the specific trade or discipline chosen. However, all NVQs at this level follow a competency-based approach, assessing practical skills and knowledge in real construction site scenarios.
