  • 1. What are NVQs? Pathway Groupputting you first
  • 2. What are NVQ’s all about? Want to further your qualifications and career but not sure about going down the traditional academic route ? Are you a practical or visual learner? Do you like hands on work? Then, doing an NVQ may be the right option for you! NVQ’s are nationally recognised qualifications that give you academic qualifications in conjunction with working. NVQ’s offer you the chance to improve your career whatever your age and they are especially good for people who enjoy practical, hands on learning outside of the traditional academic environment. NVQ’s are made up of individual units. There are a series of mandatory units and depending on the sector there may also be some additional optional units. As NVQ’s are vocational training most assessment will normally take place on-site, where you are working. The Assessor will agree with the candidate before the assessment what is the best assessment method and they will work from there. Methods of Assessment: Questions, Questions The Assessor will ask questions relating to the written evidence that a candidate has provided. This is done to make sure that the candidate has a thorough personal knowledge of the subject. The Assessor may ask additional questions to which require knowledge of the subject but aren’t a specific learning topic in the coursework. This makes sure that you have a good understanding beyond minimum requirements. Two topics may be mixed to make sure that the candidate has an understanding of both and if they relate, how they do. Having a Discussion The Assessor records a discussion between themselves and the candidate about assessable areas. The Assessor will as questions about the work that the candidate has recently completed that has been submitted for assessment. 1.
  • 3. Including Your Prior Experience (Accreditation of Previous Learning: APL) If a candidate has evidence from activities that they have taken place in the past, it may be possible to use as evidence for the NVQ if it is current and relevant. Types of evidence would be certificates, records of courses attended or employers’ references. These will help show that you have additional knowledge which may help you pass the NVQ quicker. Work Based Assessments The Assessor or a witness observes you as you work. You may also need to provide supporting evidence such as working diaries, emails and job and inspection sheets to back this up.
