Experienced workers can obtain an NVQ through NFRC’s new on-site service
Experienced workers can obtain an NVQ through NFRC’s new on-site service.
There are a number of reasons that operatives may need proof of competence such as an NVQ.
One of these is that on 31 December 2024, Industry Accreditation (IA) also known as ‘grandfather rights‘, is coming to an end as a method of holding CSCS cards. (If you have an Industry Accreditation card, the rear of your physical CSCS card will state ‘Industry Accreditation’. This will also be stated on your virtual card if you use My CSCS.)
An NVQ is a work-based qualification that recognises the skills and knowledge a person needs to do a job to demonstrate and prove their competency in their chosen job.
Delivery of NVQs through the NFRC
Assessment Service is based on the needs of the individual operative. Assessment can be done on-site rather than visiting a college or exam centre.
On-site assessment means that the NVQ assessor visits learners in the workplace, completing live assessments with your team. The assessment keeps written work to a minimum and includes one-on-one professional discussions with an assessor, and witness testimonies from the operative’s site manager or colleagues.
NFRC’s Careers Service can then support you to understand and access the CITB funding available, to make this as cost neutral as possible.
A range of NVQs are available at Levels 2, 3 and 4. Get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org to find out if the NFRC Assessment Service meets your Experienced Worker Assessment needs and how to get started.
If this service is not right for you, the NFRC Careers Service is here to help you find the right fit for you and your business.
