What are NVQs?

NVQs are based on national occupational standards. These standards are a demonstration of performance and knowledge that are requirements for competent people in a particular occupation are expected to be able to do. They cover all the main aspects of an occupation, including current best practice, the ability to adapt to future requirements and the knowledge and understanding that underpin competent performance.

How are NVQs achieved?

NVQs work by testing your abilities in the workplace. To complete an NVQ you need to prove that you can do certain work-related tasks. NVQs are assessed in a combination of ways: By portfolio – provide evidence of knowledge through what you do at work; and by observation – an assessor watches you work and checks that you can do the tasks.

You produce evidence to prove you have the competence to meet the NVQ standards. Assessors sign off units when you are ready. The assessor tests your knowledge, understanding and work-based performance to make sure you can demonstrate competence in the workplace.
