The CIOB plays a leading role in the development and continual improvement of educational standards in the built environment at a national and international level.
The achievement of professionalism at all levels within the construction industry is at the core of CIOB work. In establishing the criteria for membership of the CIOB, the Institute has developed a framework of educational requirements designed to reflect industry needs and provision.
The CIOB has an accreditation process which establishes the standards and requirements for Universities and Colleges seeking CIOB accreditation of their qualifications.
As an awarding body, the CIOB has designed qualifications for those who already have or are intending to develop a career in Site Supervision or Site Management. These awards are registered with the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) at Level 3 and 4 of the National Qualifications Framework and are delivered throughout the UK and Ireland. The CIOB also jointly recognises a number of National and Scottish Vocational Qualifications (N/SVQ).
