FAQs

Why should I do an NVQ?

An NVQ shows your current and future employers that you are competent in your work and have an interest in developing and improving yourself.

How long will it take to get an NVQ?

You can work at your own page, with the time taken being dependent on your workload and how easily you find the required evidence. As a rough guide:

  • Level 2 NVQ: 2-4 months
  • Level 3 NVQ: 4-6 months
  • Level 6 NVQ: 6-12 months
What level NVQ should I do?

The level of work that you do in your current job determines what NVQ level you should do. You must have a minimum number of relevant years’ experience to do higher level NVQs.

How will the NVQ be delivered?

Your NVQ is an assessment of how competent you are in your job role. Our assessor will visit you in the workplace to carry out the checks and may also speak to your colleagues and/or line manager.

Will I have homework?

Yes there may be homework as part of your NVQ or apprenticeship. You will be able to collect most of your evidence during your daily work, however you may want to compile your portfolio at home to give yourself more time.

Can I fail an NVQ?

No, you can’t fail an NVQ. If you can’t find enough or the right evidence then your assessor will help you deal with it.

Will an NVQ get in the way of my job?

No, in fact the NVQ should complement your job and show that you can do it.
