How Can We Help You?

Construction NVQ: How Long Does It Take?

It would usually take quite some time to gain an NVQ qualification, but not with Access Training! Our assessment programmes are tailored to help you get qualified within a relatively short time period, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch and let us know how we can be of service.
  • Meet the requirements for on-site work
  • Take your trade career to the next level
  • Increase you earning potential
  • Prove your skills to potential employers
  • Build a future that you can be proud of
Alternatively, if you’re looking to learn a whole new trade from the ground up, we offer career change courses in plumbing, electrical work and a number of other trades.

Earning an NVQ qualification opens new doors and proves that you have mastered your chosen trade.

Why study for an NVQ?

Earning an NVQ construction qualification can open up a number of professional opportunities that are off-limits to tradespeople who do not hold an NVQ or equivalent. Most significantly, an NVQ qualifies you to work on a construction site – so if you want to supplement the carpentry or plastering work you’ve been carrying out in people’s homes with some larger-scale on-site work, this qualification is essential.

NVQ stands for National Vocational Qualification. As a national qualification, it is widely recognised by employers throughout the UK in all sorts of different sectors. Access Training can help you to complete a portfolio of work and meet the requirements for your chosen NVQ programme.

Typical roadmap for earning a construction NVQ qualification:

  • Initial interview with Access Training to help us get a feel for your current skill level
  • Formal induction (can be conducted online or at our training centre)
  • Regular progress meetings while you compile a portfolio of work
  • Final submission of your portfolio
  • You will then be assessed and, if successful, awarded your NVQ qualification
