National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) are work-based awards in England that are achieved through assessment and training. It’s an ideal way to learn without having to give up work and employers agree that they demonstrate the true skills of an employee.

NVQs are available for all in employment; it can be a starting point to improve your skills or start on the job train in due to a career change. Either way, you will find a variety of short courses to suit your requirements here at Oaklands College.
