N/A

On-programme assessment is used to monitor progress in the acquisition of knowledge, skills and experience. This normally includes two elements:

a) Knowledge delivered in College

b) The presentation of a portfolio of evidence (which will not form part of the Diploma). This will be assessed by Assessors who are either qualified NVQ Assessors or who are active and trained Assessors.

Apprentices without Level 2 English and Maths will need to achieve this level prior to taking the End Point Assessment. 

The End Point Assessment includes two components – a technical report project and a question and answer session: these will be completed after gateway.

Component 1: Project with a project output (completed within four weeks)

You must complete a project which may be based on any of the following:

  • a specific problem
  • a recurring issue
  • an idea or opportunity

Component 2: Question and answer session

This Level 3 apprenticeship can lead to higher and degree level professional qualifications. 

It also paves the way to job roles in site management, design management, quantity surveying or estimating.
