Construction Supervision and Management NVQs are work-related, competence based qualifications that reflect the knowledge and skills to do a specific job and correspond directly to academic equivalents.
NVQs offer flexible training with no age limits or special entry requirements and no need to leave the work place. They are achieved through assessment by a qualified assessor.
Pearson is the leading accredited awarding body in the UK for NVQs and CASL has been a Pearson approved assessment centre for Construction Supervision and Management NVQs at Levels 3, 4, 6 and 7 since 2002.
CASL assessors work with UK-based and overseas learners.
As part of the NVQ assessment process, CASL help learners gain membership of industry professional bodies and the right CSCS card.
CASL assesses a wide range of Construction Supervision and Management NVQs at Levels 3 through to Level 7. Our NVQs are suitable for individuals who already have site construction and building skills as well as those starting out in the industry.
Our assessors work with the individual to determine the NVQ that is right for them based on their work experience.
CASL provides full support in helping learners gain professional membership of the prominent construction industry professional bodies, including the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
This service is part of the assessment fee and is provided at no additional cost to the learner.
Membership of industry professional bodies bring benefits such as boosting individual career and salary prospects through internationally recognised qualifications.
Each individual will have specific work experiences and vocational qualifications and CASL provide a “go to” service as each learner considers application for membership of their respective industry professional body.
The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) awards CSCS cards to reflect the competency level of the construction worker and the CSCS card awarded reflects the NVQ Diploma course that the learner enrols onto/achieves.
CASL supports each learner in gaining the correct CSCS card upon registration or completion of their construction vocational qualification. This service is provided at no additional cost to the learner.
At the current time, a Gold CSCS card is issued for a Level 4 NVQ Construction Diploma qualification and a Black CSCS card for a Level 6 or Level 7 Construction Diploma qualification.
Periodically the CSCS scheme is reappraised to ensure it remains fit for purpose and CASL assessors will advise learners as to the correct CSCS cards to reflect any resulting changes.

Lance and Vanessa were both brilliant. They kept me up to date with timescales and made sure that my evidence was sufficient enough for each unit
I found the service and support to be great, including the nudges from time to time to get me refocused. Thank You
Through my experience with Lance and his team I would look to use them again in future training needs and will be recommending them to colleagues in the future
It has been a pleasure working with Lance and Vanessa on gaining my NVQ and hopefully gaining my MCIOB next year
The staff at CASL were extremely friendly and professional at all times ensuring that I was comfortable throughout the course
I would like to thank everyone at CASL for there assistance and perseverance in enabling me to gain my NVQ 6 and their prompt replies from my questions and queries particularly my assessor Lance Saunders
CASL have been great. This is my second qualification achieved through CASL and I look forward to making the third in the not too distant future. Many Thanks.
Very good support system in place from the staff and very quick response if ever needed
Very informative and constructive every step of the way. Sometimes with distance learning the void period between sending in work and receiving feedback can be long and off putting. I can honestly say that the feedback with yourselves was same day and this helped me so much to maintain continuity of thought and confidence throughout the course. The whole experience was positive from start to finish, as was the outcome
