Course Content

NVQs are a system of awards that were introduced for people involved in vocational work. There are a series of NVQs specifically designed for those working with health and social care.

For the Level 3 NVQ in health and social care there are four mandatory units and a choice of four optional units from a selection of seventy-two. The mandatory units cover communication, health and safety, personal development and protection of individuals.

Method of Assessment

Each qualification is a combination of mandatory and optional units. To achieve an NVQ at level three a candidate must be assessed as competent in all four of the mandatory units and a choice of four optional units. The choice of optional units will reflect the candidate's work setting. Assessment takes place in the workplace, meeting national standards, using observation, witness testimony, reflective accounts, and professional discussion. The candidate may also be expected to answer written or oral questions and perhaps complete a short project.

In the workplace you will need to be actively working with individuals requiring support. An assessor will be allocated unless you already have a qualified work-based assessor. You will also gather evidence and this will be put in a portfolio. Evidence comprises of your work experiences with adults.

Progression

Upon completion of level 3, students may progress onto NVQ level 4 in Care, a Foundation Degree or, depending upon other qualifications and experience, nurse training.
