NATIONAL VOCATIONAL QUALIFICATION

NVQs are work based qualifications which recognise the skills and knowledge a person requires to carry out a job. The candidate requires to demonstrate and prove their competency in their chosen role or career path.


Define competency?


Candidates need to demonstrate that they have the suitable skills, knowledge and understanding to carry out the tasks associated with their job role.


What do NVQs courses cover?


NVQs cover a wide range of subjects for almost every occupational area in every business sector.

  • Certification to demonstrate you have met a national standard for a construction-related  occupational role
  • Improved employability and transferability
  • Access to recognised qualification and the relevant CSCS, CPCS, NPORS and affiliated cards for employees with or without formal education


for Employers:

  • An effective way of developing staff to a nationally recognised standard which results in improved efficiency and entitles them to their CSCS, CPCS, NPORS and affiliated cards
  • Proof of the candidate's capability to do their job as it is based on what they can do rather than what they know

  • Demonstrates a commitment to quality both internally and externally to customers
  • Ensures employees are up to date with industry standards and best practice


How are NVQ’s assessed?


NVQ’s are competency based and the candidate produces evidence of what they do in their work situation which becomes the basis of a portfolio that is assessed against the relevant occupational standard. The candidates must demonstrate that their skills are current and prove their competency over a period of time.

Evidence can be submitted electronically any time of day or night from anywhere in the world.

You cannot fail an NVQ. You are either classed as competent, or not yet competent; which means you would need to provide additional or further evidence over a period of time.
