Updated National Occupational Standards (NOS) now available

Construction Industry Council (CIC), a partner in ConstructionSkills, has helped revise the Surveying, Property and Maintenance NVQs (level 4 & 5) in conjunction, with industry experts.

The revision focused on modernising and simplifying the National Occupational Standards – the building blocks of NVQs/SVQs. Key improvements include the replacement of the original suites of separate awards with a single “core and options” matrix. The new structure allows candidates to build NVQ/SVQs around common competences, to suit their own individual personal development.

National Occupational Standards are designed for those working at a technical, managerial or strategic level. They address the needs of a variety of specialisms in the fields of Maintenance Management, Quantity Surveying, General Practice, Building Surveying and Valuation - providing a way of recognising the competence levels of members within these professions.
