NVQ Courses without Examinations

There’s nothing quite like an NVQ – qualifications that focus entirely on your role within a company.

Demonstrate how to properly record, report and handle issues at globally recognised standards of a professionally trained, health and safety officer or those responsible for health and safety activities.

An NVQ is a competency based qualification, which is not evaluated by a formal examination. You are assessed upon evidence gathered whilst undertaking your day-to-day working responsibilities to demonstrate your competency.

SHEilds are an approved training provider for ProQual NVQs.

Frequently Asked Questions

A National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) is work-based and involves assessing an individuals’ performance in the workplace. To obtain an NVQ, students must demonstrate that they can competently carry out work-related activities to the required standard of their job role.

NVQ’s are not assessed by examinations or tests and are solely evaluated against a competency frame work.

Essentially, NVQ students leverage documents produced as part of day to day work activities, towards the qualifications criteria for ‘competence’.

There are no exams, simply documented evidence you can do a particular job.

Although an NVQ cannot technically be considered failed, it may be determined that you are not yet classed as competent and therefore unqualified.

NVQs are relatively simple in their grading method, you are either ‘competent’, meaning you’ve passed and supplied all required evidence to proof this, or ‘not yet competent’ and likely have more evidence to collect.
