If you decide to take an NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) course, you will have taken an important step to improving your career prospects. This sort of course can open up a world of opportunities for you, as well as helping you to develop your skills and knowledge ready for a new challenge.
Health and Social Care NVQs – benefits
Approved by the Qualifications Curriculum Authority, NVQs in Care are nationally and in some cases, internationally recognised by employers. This is because they are based on the National Occupation Standards, which have been set out by the care sector.
With this sort of respected qualification under your belt, you will be able to demonstrate to prospective employers that you are capable of performing to the standards they demand.
Who is eligible to take NVQ care courses?
The only requirement to taking an NVQ in Health and Social Care is that you are employed within a relevant workplace, one that meets health and social care occupational standards. Other than that, there are no barriers for anyone wanting to take an NVQ care course, whether you have previous learning in this field or not.
