If you have a large variety of work you can complete it quicker, if you are doing the same thing day in and day out then you will find it harder to provide the full range of evidence required.

COMPONENT PARTS OF THE NVQ

  • Witness testimony
  • Reflective accounts
  • Photographic evidence
  • Direct observation

Once you have completed your Porfolio you will be required to complete an AM2 test which is taken at an Independent Centre lasting 2.5 days at a fee of circa £325.00
