National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) are qualifications that demonstrate your ability to do your job. There are no formal examinations. The training is mainly on the job and NVQ assessment is directly related to your performance at work.
The NVQ in Health and Social Care is a nationally-recognised programme, designed by employers to meet the needs of today's social care environment. You can tailor-make your own NVQ, allowing you to focus on and develop the Health and Social Care skills that you use most often.
The "Work Profile" contained within the course will help you choose what to learn, depending on the skills you need to do your job more effectively.
And, if you feel that you need help understanding how your English skills could help with your qualification, then we have a course that will show you how these skills relate to the different areas of work in your NVQ.
