What are NVQs?

NVQs, or National Vocational Qualifications, are qualifications that focus on providing candidates with the practical skills necessary to work in a specific industry and complete the tasks related to their role. 

NVQs are work-based qualifications that offer participants a chance to develop their professional skills in order to better meet job requirements and industry standards. Based on national occupational standards (NOS), they have historically been the most well-known and highly regarded type of qualification among UK employers.

NVQ courses are available at any career stage, regardless of an individual's current position. They are also designed to be highly flexible, meeting the needs of part- and full-time employees as well as those studying at college.

NVQ Courses - Subjects and Formats

NVQ Award, Certificate and Diploma courses are offered in a variety of different subject matters in order to meet any individual's career needs. Popular areas include:

    • health & social care
    • business & management
    • production & engineering
    • construction
    • sales & customer service
    • hospitality & leisure services

    As they work by testing an individual's ability to complete various work-related activities & tasks, NVQ courses are assessed via a combination of portfolio evidence and observation. The former involves the candidate collecting and submitting evidence of what they've done, while the latter involves being formally observed by a qualified assessor who watches the candidate work and confirms he or she can successfully perform the required tasks.
