NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) qualifications in social care are a type of vocational qualification that focus on practical skills and knowledge needed for a specific job or occupation. These qualifications are specifically tailored to the social care sector, and include:

  • NVQ Level 2 in Health and Social Care
  • NVQ Level 3 in Health and Social Care
  • NVQ Level 4 in Health and Social Care
  • NVQ Level 5 in Leadership for Health and Social Care Services

These qualifications are usually assessed through a combination of observation, professional discussion, and the creation of a portfolio of evidence. They are designed to be flexible, and can be taken on a full-time or part-time basis, and also can be done while working. The NVQ framework was replaced by the QCF (Qualifications and Credit Framework) in 2010, but some NVQs are still valid and accepted by employers and organizations.
