NVQ Part 1)
Witness testimonies. These are pre-printed in the NVQ pack and are sent out to you a minimum of 5 days before your assessment date at our NVQ Centre in Bradford. You must get them signed by a trade related co-worker who has seen you complete this work in the last 3 years.
NVQ Part 2)
Practical assessment. This is where you come to NVQ A & T and complete a practical assessment pre-set by the CITB. The drawing plan with all specifications and measurements is sent out to you a minimum of 5 days before this practical assessment. You must complete the assessment to spec and within the allocated time. You must bring you own tools for the assessment. Waiting for you will be the materials to complete the task.
NVQ Part 3)
Professional discussion. This is also completed at NVQ A & T on the same day as your practical assessment. The best way to describe this is like a structured discussion around the NVQ required units. It is not a questions and answers session but more of a talking through jobs or projects you have completed and the assessor may ask you to elaborate on certain parts so you are effectively talking your way through the NVQ units as talking evidence. Thus, turning your experience as a tiler into the NVQ.
NVQ Part 4)
Direct Questioning. Some assessment criteria within the NVQ will ask you to ‘state’ or ‘describe’. These will be covered during the professional discussion or by direct questioning. The assessment criteria can be found below the 5 tiling NVQ units listed above.
Time to book it and get on with it…
If you are happy to proceed and you feel confident and our NVQ assessor also feels confident in your ability and experience to achieve the NVQ we can go ahead with booking the tiling NVQ. We require a deposit of £350. We then send you the documentation as detailed above and we will set your tiling NVQ assessment date.
When you arrive for the NVQ assessment you will bring with you your signed witness testimonies and your tools. This is when you will pay the remaining balance of £400. You will then be inducted into the NVQ. During this day, you will complete the practical assessment and professional discussion. Total price £750.
At the end of the day you will be told by the assessor if you have achieved or not achieved. If you have achieved you will be sent your certificate within 14 days (sometimes can be 7 days). You will receive a call when your qualification has been logged on the system which will allow you to apply for your blue skilled worker CSCS card and get on site!
