Modern businesses demand good IT skills from the majority of their staff. However, 40 per cent of today's computer users have had no previous training at all.
The NVQ for IT Users (ITQ) is a relatively new and flexible training programme that can be tailored to fit the individual needs of learners. It is benchmarked to the e-skills National Occupational Standards for IT Users. This means that on attaining this qualification, employers will know you are trained to a nationally set level of competence. It also forms part of the new Apprenticeship Framework for IT Users.
A Highly Flexible Course that Will Cater for your Specific Needs and Level
These courses are particularly aimed at those who significantly use computers at an intermediate level to process information and provide IT support to others. The courses can also be adapted for individuals who have higher or lower abilities in particular applications in order to help them gain the knowledge and skills they require.
Learners plan a programme of development and assessment with their assessor and compile a portfolio of evidence to prove they are competent and knowledgeable in the use of IT in the workplace.
The NVQs for IT Users all have what are called ‘Unit Values’. Learners are required to complete a set amount of these for the level of the qualification they are aiming to achieve. These NVQs can be completed on their own or combined with the Advanced Modern Apprenticeship scheme.
Entry Requirement and Initial Assessment
There are no formal entry requirements but an initial assessment of your past experience, current skills, knowledge and understanding and job-role will be done before you start in order to assess which is the right NVQ for you. In some circumstances, references from people who can confirm your performance in the workplace will be used in the assessment process.
How do I Achieve my NVQ?
There is no written exam to take. To attain an NVQ you must show that you have acquired the skills and knowledge covered by the units (see below). Your assessor will judge from the evidence you provide, whether you have demonstrated the skills and knowledge needed for the appropriate level. This can include evidence of any previous relevant qualifications or learning, and your ability to implement it in the workplace and any recent activities at work. Though it is not necessary for you to have had any previous qualifications or experience.
Do I Need to Complete All the Units to Achieve my NVQ?
No. Because all the units have been given specific values you need to achieve just the minimum amount set for the level you are doing.
What is the Method of Assessment?
A full NVQ Level 2 or 3 is achieved by the production of a portfolio of evidence, which proves job competence (including workplace assessments) to the required level. When assessors are satisfied that you have met all of the requirements of a unit, they will confirm this by signing an evidence record sheet for that unit to confirm that it has been completed.
What is Used for Evidence of Achievement?
Evidence can be compiled from any number of things that shows what you can do, how well you can do it and demonstrates your level of knowledge and understanding (but you do not have to produce a separate piece of evidence for every skill and knowledge requirement). These can be in the form of following:
Letters, faxes and e-mails you have prepared and sent to colleagues or customers.
Electronic schedules and diaries you have used to plan your work.
Information you have processed and presented in a database software form.
Presentations prepared with graphics.
References from people who can confirm your competency in an ITC environment.
Records of discussions between yourself and your assessor.
Video recordings or records of your assessor observing you carrying out your work.
About the Mandatory and Optional Units

For Level 2: 100 Unit Values For Level 3: 180 Unit Values
