Construction NVQs: what they are:
NVQ stands for National Vocational Qualification. It is a competence-based qualification: this means you learn practical, work-related tasks designed to help you develop the skills and knowledge to do a job effectively.
NVQs are based on national standards for various occupations. The standards say what a competent person in a job could be expected to do. As you progress through the course, you compare your skills and knowledge with these standards as you learn, so you can see what you need to do to meet them.
Taking an NVQ could be appropriate if you already have skills and want to improve them, or if you are starting from scratch.
NVQs are at levels 1 to 5 on the National Qualifications Framework. The framework shows how different types of qualifications compare, in terms of the demands they place on learners.
Hands on trades such as Plastering, Bricklaying and Tiling are set at the following levels
Level 1 - Trainee / Under 19`s / Labourer
Level 2 - Skilled Worker
Level 3 - Management / Running a company with staff
