I have years of experience why do I need a qualification to prove that I’m a skilled site manager or supervisor?

While experience is important, the construction industry’s aim is to improve standards and safety on UK construction sites. This is why clients, employers and contractors want construction workers to achieve a nationally recognised qualification for the occupation they are working in.

Employers are increasingly using CSCS cards as a means to check that workers on their sites have the correct qualifications for the job they are doing. Profiled Route tells your employer you do not hold a nationally recognised construction related qualification.

You are required to obtain a Construction related NVQ/SVQ levels 4, 5, 6 or 7 in the relevant construction management level qualification.

The qualification you need to achieve will depend what job you do on a construction site. Check the requirements using the CSCS Card Finder.
