This qualifi cation is aimed at those who have responsibility for organising and supervising work on
construction sites including the planning and controlling of work methods, allocation of equipment, personnel
and materials, and ensuring work is completed to the required standard and ensuring communication is
clear and effective. This qualifi cation is at Level 3, although some units may be at different levels. Level 3
qualifi cations are primarily aimed at those who are fully trained and experienced in a wide range of roles and
requires the individual to be actively involved in decision making and have a good understanding of problems
that can occur on construction sites and be able to deal with them. Candidates will also be required to prove
knowledge of legislation, leading teams and maintaining and improving the standards of work.
Because of the wide range of tasks that take place on construction sites it is not expected that those who have
supervisory responsibilities will all do the same activities; the qualifi cation is structured to ensure that there
is a high degree of fl exibility within the units available, there are 6 pathways to cover a range of construction
activities that come under the following broad headings: Building & Civil Engineering, Highways and
Maintenance Repair, Residential Development, Conservation, Demolition and Tunnelling.
