When we receive an enquiry or initial payment we will conduct an initial interview with you using ZOOM or TEAMS to determine how you will gather the evidence required to complete the qualification.
We will also need to speak to your employer to confirm this.
Once enrolled onto the course you will be assigned an assessor.
We will talk through a schedule plan and timetable to help you gather evidence in full and on time. We will regularly review your progress to ensure that you remain on track using our eportfolio platform.
You will be assessed by a range of different methods such as photographic or video evidence generated from the workplace, professional discussions, witness testimonials, observations and written questions.
To pass the qualification, you are required to provide evidence for every unit of the NVQ. When you submit evidence using our eportfolio platform, the assessor will sign it off or return it to you asking for more evidence to meet the unit criteria. When you have completed each unit, the assessor will provide you with feedback.
When all units have been fully completed, our IQA will carry out a final quality check of your portfolio before signing it off.
There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification. We will carry out an initial assessment of your skills and knowledge to identify any gaps and help you plan the assessment.
