You will finish the qualification with the skills and expertise to properly fulfil your position to an industry-standard in a safe manner.
Once you have enrolled, 3B will assign you to an assessor to guide you throughout the process.
The assessor will organise an initial induction meeting. This will help you plan out how you will build your portfolio. The induction will be followed up by several review meetings in which the assessor will check on your progress.
The assessor will evaluate you through various methods, including; written questions, evidence generated from the workplace, observations, professional discussions, and witness testimonials.
To pass the NVQ, you must provide the required evidence for each unit of the qualification. Once this has been done, the assessor will review the portfolio and relay the feedback.
Once that you respond to the feedback, the assessor will send the portfolio to the IQA. The IQA will have the concluding decision on whether any additional evidence is needed or if the qualification is complete.
Upon achievement of the NVQ, you will be able to apply for your Blue Skilled Worker. This card will show that you have the relevant knowledge to be conducting your role properly.
You will also receive an accredited certificate. The certificate does not have an expiry date and does not need to be renewed.
