Level 5 NVQ Assessment Process

Attaining a Level 5 NVQ in construction involves showcasing your hands-on expertise, including strict adherence to safety protocols, mastery of manual trades, and the ability to collaborate effectively within a team. The assessment goes beyond a binary pass or fail system; instead, assessors closely observe your performance, categorising you as either 'Competent' (indicating a pass) or 'Not Yet Competent,' highlighting areas for potential skill enhancement and further development.
