No. NVQs aren’t about how good you are at exams, they are about how good you are at work. NVQs never involve written tests, they don’t involve trick questions – they are designed to let your skills, knowledge and experience shine through in practical ways.
NVQs relate to the real world and many certificate holders and their employers will tell you that this is their main advantage. NVQs are not about going back to school. They are about going where you want to go in your career.
NVQs have no formal entry requirements, however potential candidates must be able to demonstrate to us that they have the skills, knowledge and experience required in order to achieve the qualification. This is confirmed through our profiling process. We will never enrol any learner onto an NVQ program unless we are sure that the qualification is actually achievable.
