What are NVQs?
National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) are work-related, competence-based qualifications. They reflect the skills and knowledge needed to do a job effectively, and show that you are competent in the area of work the NVQ framework represents.
The Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Leisure Management contains knowledge units as well as competence units, we have separated these units to help with the types of evidence you will need to provide.
NVQs are based on national occupational standards. These standards are statements of performance that describe what competent people in a particular occupation are expected to be able to do. They cover all the main aspects of an occupation, including current best practice, the ability to adapt to future requirements and the knowledge and understanding that underpin competent performance.
Within reason, NVQs do not have to be completed in a specified amount of time. They can be taken by full-time employees or by school and college Learners with a work placement or part-time job that enables them to develop the appropriate skills. There are no age limits and no special entry requirements.
While NVQs technically stipulate no time limit, within reason, it is worth bearing in mind that setting time targets and limits is usually an important part of achieving goals of any sort. It is not helpful to drift aimlessly towards qualification ‘one day’ or ‘sometime in the future’, which under such vague circumstances often never actually comes. The best idea is to set and agree clear achievable and staged time targets with your work-based Assessor who will assess and monitor your progress against those agreed targets.
Who is Involved?
You will be assigned an assessor who will support, guide and assess you throughout this qualification. You will also have an assigned Internal Verifier who will check the work of your Assessor and ensure that the Assessor is working to the required standard. You may also meet the External Verifier. This person works for Active IQ and checks that the Assessor and the Internal Verifier are working to the correct standard and that you are being assessed fairly and reliably.
