RivaSure News: Construction Management Development Programme.
To all of our past CSCS Profiled Route and NVQ candidates, first of all we at RivaSure would like to take the opportunity of thanking you for using our services and we hope and trust that gaining your CSCS cards with us has been of great benefit, however, as a company, we have moved on and would now like to take the opportunity of informing you of our company development, which is the creation of our Management Development Programme.
With the close of the CSCS Profiled Route in March 2016, we at RivaSure took this opportunity to take stock of what we had learnt from the experience of assisting hundreds of candidates in gaining their CSCS Black and Gold CSCS cards with the use of our online short course Fast Track interactive service.
One of our observations was that most construction managers and those wishing to be construction managers or supervisors were non-academic by nature and experience. This does not mean that they were unprofessional in executing their job roles, but that they needed our assistance to complete their ‘academic professional review’ applications to the required standard.
Using this knowledge and experience going forward, we are pleased to announce that we have created a Construction Management Development Programme which includes two New industry service products. Our aim, as before, is to assist our Supervisory and Management candidates and students to achieve their industry qualifications (NVQ’s) and further more, to achieve professional recognition with the CIOB.
The first of our new developments is our Management and Management of Construction Health and Safety GAP (Guide And Prepare) Course. We have placed this course on a friendly online learning environment. Our delivery has been specifically designed for non academics and to this end we have used a ‘Narrative’ learning style. We use the stories and experiences of practicing professionals to:
- Teach, refresh and encourage others working in the industry to promote and attempt to achieve a 0 tolerance to accidents and industrial ill health
- To pass on good management practices, procedures, characteristics and management styles.
We believe the course will also serve our industry by:
- Preparing learners and students wishing to enter into construction management as a supplement to their current course studies or their first course study
- Equipping assistant managers and those wishing to progress into management by teaching valuable management concepts, practices and procedures & the safe management of H&S on site.
- Preparing candidates wishing to embark on a management NVQ
- Providing valuable CPD (between SMSTS courses) for practicing managers and enthusing and encouraging a strong H&S culture on site.
We are of the opinion that the five year gap between SMSTS courses is too long and that there is very little direct construction management training for individuals wishing to progress into management and it is these GAPs our course aims to fill.
To complete our Management Development Programme, we are pleased to inform you that our second new industry service product is our ‘CIOB Professional Review Industry application mentoring system’. This service is open to candidates that have completed an Edexcel Construction Management level 6 and 7 NVQ and follows a similar fast track system to that which we used on the CSCS profiled Route.
Throughout our development we have continued to offer Supervisory and Management NVQ’s provided by Edexcel as Edexel are the CIOB-Chartered Institute of Building- preferred NVQ provider.
We hope our developments will be of interest and should this be the case, in advance we thank you for your patronage and look forward to working with your further or for the first time.
