This Level 7 NVQ Diploma in Construction Senior Management provides the opportunity for Individuals who are working as managers within the construction and built environment sector to demonstrate their competence. This work based qualification is at Level 7, although some units may be at different levels and is aimed at individuals who are leading and controlling projects in construction – for example, managers with responsibility for procurement, estimation or design.
