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.
