National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ’s) are a company’s way of ensuring that their workforce are trained to a certain occupational standard. NVQ’s are an important part of improving upon an employee’s knowledge and competency. They cover the specific occupational aspects of work, as well as current industry best practice and health and safety requirements.
NVQ’s can be delivered according to a company’s own timetable, at times that best suit both the company and the individual. The duration of an NVQ depends on the experience of the employee, however, our industry experienced assessors will be on hand every step of the way to ensure the employee understands what is expected of them. Evidence is gathered and assessed against the NVQ standard to form the majority of the NVQ, so there are no complex exams or tests for the employee to pass.
NVQ’s in construction can be skills based, from entry Level 1 which will allow for a green CSCS Labourer card to be applied for up to senior management Level 7. They can also be plant based for either CPCS or NPORS, depending on the company’s requirements.
