Next Steps

Before you start work on your qualification you will meet with your assessor to discuss what you need to do to complete your qualification. This can include:

  • checking you are taking the right qualification level
  • checking you have chosen suitable units
  • identifying any training or learning you will need to help you gain your qualification
  • agreeing an assessment plan
  • signing a learning contract

As part of this meeting, you will discuss the skills and knowledge you may already have, and decide how this can be used towards your qualification. This process is sometimes called a skill scan.

Once you have chosen your units you will make and agree an assessment plan with your assessor. This will show:

  • the units the plan covers
  • when you will be assessed
  • where the assessment will take place
  • what you will be doing
  • what evidence you will produce
  • who will assess you


The plan should also indicate the methods of assessment to be used to collect your evidence. Evidence can include:

  • direct observation in the workplace by a qualified assessor
  • witness testimony of work carried out by you in the workplace written by an expert witness
  • questioning – this could be verbal, written or computer based
  • other evidence which can include photographs or personal accounts

In the event of a cancellation or deferment, we provide fully transparent terms and conditions.

Methods of Assessment

The method of assessment is a one-step journey:

Completing an NVQ doesn’t require you to take traditional exams. Instead, assessment is based around your competency in fulfilling your job role duties to meet occupational standards. Assessors will evaluate you based on the contents of your portfolio. It’s essential to maintain this portfolio with evidence showcasing the tasks, duties, and accomplishments you’ve accomplished in work.
