Building Crafts College to provide CIOB Site Supervision and Management qualifications

Centre of vocational excellence, the London-based Building Crafts College, will provide CIOB accredited Site Supervision and Site Management programmes from Spring 2013 for those working, or hoping to work, at a supervisory level within the construction industry.

The Building Crafts College will hold the courses on Saturday mornings in order to fit with busy work schedules, and the campus itself is ideally placed in Stratford, East London with easy transport links to central and greater London and the surrounding counties.

CIOB qualifications Level 3 Diploma in Site Supervisory Studies (QCF) and Level 4 Certificate & Diploma in Site Management (QCF) help develop knowledge, skills and improve career prospects by offering:

  • the skills and confidence to manage and co-ordinate all types of construction projects
  • a nationally recognised certificate or diploma qualification
  • the ability to progress to a higher level of study and a professional qualification
  • increased promotional prospects
  • progression in S/NVQs and then CSCS registration

The courses are based on assessment of coursework and practical assignments which are designed to complement existing Site Supervisors and Managers roles. There are no examinations. Business development director at the Building Crafts College, John Appleton, said, “We have often been asked if we could provide the CIOB Site qualifications and this year we decided to add them to the wide range of building, construction and craft courses we offer. The feedback we have already had tells us that the combination of our location, the competitive price and the Saturday schedule make our delivery of these courses particularly appealing.”
