National Vocational Qualifications

Previous papers set the scene for NVQs. No apology need be made for a further article on this subject, as the technical education and training, and the assessment of competence in the workplace, is to be the pattern of the future. This feature accepts the inevitability of the National Vocation structure and seeks to explain and place it in the context of people in training for the 21 st century and a unified Europe. However, it is important at the outset to state what NVQ’s are not: they are not a replacement for the education and training which is vital to a dynamic industry and profession; NVQs bring another dimension of standards of workplace competence.
