Each candidate is given a personal NVQ assessor. The assessor’s job is to give the guidance and support necessary for the candidate to evidence his working history at the correct level / standard. It’s not rocket science and if there are parts of the process which are unclear, it is the assessor’s responsibility to bring clarity and understanding.
The standards of each NVQ are met by a variety of means such as completing a Knowledge Questionnaire, sometimes called the candidate’s statement, assessor’s report and or professional discussion, copies of certificates, qualifications and site documentation. The standards of the NVQ’s are set in accordance with the National Occupation Standard and offered by awarding bodies such as the CITB or EDEXCEL and are delivered via NVQ assessment or training centres. These qualifications are recognised throughout the world!
The NVQ OSAT (On Site Assessment and Training) process is a profiling exercise which is carried out in a systematic fashion, led by the assessor. Management NVQ’s are primarily evidenced by submitting site records and completing a knowledge questionnaire online.
