NVQ Level 3 Painting and Decorating course content

Once that you have been registered, you will be given assessor who will work with you to build out a portfolio of evidence.

The assessor will also prepare a site induction. The site induction can be conducted on-site or remotely and is used to outline how you will obtain all the required evidence.

The assessor will catch up with you through regular reviews. The reviews are used to ensure that you remain on track with your qualification.

You will be assessed on-site through a range of methods, such as evidence generated from the workplace, professional discussion, witness testimonials, observations and written questions. You must show evidence in:

  • Developing and maintaining good occupational working
    relationships
  • Confirming work activities and resources for an
    occupational work area
  • Applying paint systems by brush and roller
  • Conforming to general health, safety and welfare
  • Preparing surfaces for painting/decorating
  • Erecting and dismantling access/working platforms

You will also have a selection of optional units to choose from, for more information on the optional units, please contact the team.

To pass the NVQ, you must produce the evidence needed for each unit of the qualification. Once you have provided all the evidence, the assessor will examine your folder and present any feedback. Once all feedback has been responded to, the portfolio will go to the IQA who will have the final decision on if the qualification is complete.

 

How long is a Level 3 Painting and Decorating NVQ?

The duration of the qualification is reliant on your ability to gather all of the evidence needed. The sooner you complete each unit, the sooner you will qualify.

This is also beneficial if you have a busy schedule to work around. You can complete the course in your own time and arrange assessments around your workload.
