National Vocation Qualification

The NVQ is a work based qualification which recognises the skills and knowledge a person needs to do a job. To gain the qualification you need to demonstrate and prove your competency in your chosen role/occupation.


To gain your blue card you need to demonstrate that you have the suitable skills, knowledge and understanding to carry out the tasks associated with your job role.


NVQ’s are required when upgrading from a CPCS Red Card to a CPCS Blue Card. They are also required for certain type of CSCS Card, for example, Supervisors and Managers Cards.

How are NVQ’s Assessed?

NVQ’s are competency based and you will need to show evidence of what you do in a work situation, this becomes the basis of your portfolio that is assessed against the relevant occupational standard. You must demonstrate that your skills are current and prove competency over a period of time.

You cannot fail an NVQ. You are either classed as competent, or not yet competent. (which means you would need to provide additional or further evidence over a period of time to show you are competent)
