NVQ Level 3 is suitable for staff with more experience and who are working in a role which involves a broad range of varied work activities, most of which are complex and non-routine. Candidates at Level 3 will have considerable autonomy or responsibility.
These NVQs are work-orientated qualifications and there are no formal qualification entry requirements. Applicants will be interviewed by a member of the NVQ team to assess the suitability of their job role for Level 3.
Possible progression routes include HLTA and Foundation Degrees for Teaching Assistants.
How is the course is delivered? These qualifications are competence-based, linking a candidate’s ability to competently perform a range of tasks connected with their work. The NVQ programme is delivered in the workplace, and assessment is based on a candidate portfolio of evidence demonstrating competence against specific performance criteria.
Candidates receive individual guidance and support throughout their programme as they build their portfolio of evidence. In addition, they will be given opportunities to meet with other candidates to discuss possible ways of collecting evidence and to attend workshops.
