What is an NVQ?


In simple terms it is an on-site test of competency, and it means that a qualified person has witnessed you carryout a variety of tasks up to a good standard. Which means, yes, to complete one you will need to be in employment. Candidates need to demonstrate that they have the suitable skills, knowledge and understanding to carry out the tasks associated with their job role. You cannot fail an NVQ. You are either classed as competent, or not yet competent; which means you would need to provide additional or further evidence over a period of time.
