Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Occupational Work Supervision  

The successful completion of the programme enables candidates to take the Supervisor and Manager CSCS Health and Safety test and if successful, qualify for a Gold CSCS Card for Occupational Work Supervisors.



This programme is designed for those who are working within the construction industry as part of the gang and are responsible for supervising its members.



Competence is assessed by ongoing assessments against the NVQ standards relating to specific areas of supervision, which include: 

  •  Health, Safety & Welfare
  • Organising the coordinating work activities and Resources 

Candidates must prove competence in 7 units (5 Mandatory and 2 optional)


Provision of Assessment

Candidates will be allocated an assessor who acts as mentor and guide throughout the programme. The programme will include an induction day which relates to the overall course and provides guidance on how the NVQ is formulated and presented. In addition candidates will attend for briefing and assessment for each of the units at Gates MacBain offices.

One or two site visits by the assessor will also be required during the period of the programme.



It is normal for candidates to complete the programme in approximately 9 months, although it is possible to do so in a shorter period. Extensions can be negotiated, although this will incur an additional fee of £40 per hour for any additional assessment time.  


The Programme fees of £1150 include NVQ registration, mentoring, briefing meetings, assessment and certification. An additional charge for mileage may be applicable dependant on location.


Grants for this programme may be payable from the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB).
