Vocational Tuition

We offer NVQ and BTEC qualifications.

NVQs – National Vocational Qualifications.

NVQs are available to adults and young people alike. You can take NVQs if:

  • you are employed
  • you are studying at college and have a part-time job or access to a work placement

You can also take an NVQ qualification at level 2 or 3 as part of an Apprenticeship. In some cases you can also do an NVQ if you are at school. There are lots of different NVQs to choose from. They are available in the vast majority of business sectors, including:

  • Business and Administration
  • Sales, Marketing and Distribution
  • Health and Social Care
  • Food, Catering and Leisure Services
  • Construction and Property
  • Manufacturing, Production and Engineering
  • Hair and Beauty
  • Child Care

NVQs are assessed on practical assignments and a portfolio of evidence. Normally, a qualified assessor will observe you and question you about the real work you carry out in the workplace (or a realistic working environment). They will test your knowledge and understanding as well as your actual performance.
Your assessor will ‘sign-off’ individual units within the NVQ when you have reached the required standard.

BTEC Qualifications

BTECS, Level 3 qualification (AS /A2 level), Level 2 qualification (GCSE level) and project qualifications are also offered.
