What are NVQ Diplomas in Health & Safety?
NVQs are the UK's premier vocational qualifications and a great alternative to academic study. Students compile a portfolio during the course, using evidence-based learning from their workplace to demonstrate knowledge and expertise.
NVQ Diplomas are suitable for health & safety professionals who already have a few years’ experience in the industry. Candidates are likely to have gained a level 3 health & safety qualification prior to studying the Diploma, such as a NEBOSH Certificate.
All our NVQ courses are work-based and completed via distance learning. There are no exams, as the course is assessed via a portfolio of work. Candidates are assigned a dedicated course manager, who will support you and provide feedback throughout your course.
The NVQ Level 6 Diploma is usually completed within 12 to 18 months.
