NVQs at Professional Levels for the Construction Industry

CISC (which now stands for the forum for NVQs/SVQs at professional, managerial and technical levels in planning, construction, property and related engineering services) has drawn up a set of occupational standards for use within the area of their remit. What people do in these areas has been laid out in the form of a map of functions. A ‘function’ is an outcome of a work activity intended to be described independently of the process of achieving it. One’s ability to achieve the required standard of performance at work (i.e. one’s competence) will be measured against performance in relation to these functions. A set of such outcomes will form a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ). Professor I.A. MacLeod
