What’s the Process?

For each of our Plant NVQs, you can expect to complete them in between 6 to 12 weeks. They can take longer, but if you’re willing to do the work, you could be done in under six weeks. Don’t feel discouraged if it’s taking you longer, though. You can complete the NVQ entirely at your own pace, so there’s no rush. Some Plant NVQs also tend to take less or more time than the others, depending on what’s expected.

To achieve your qualification, you’ll be completing a number of knowledge questions. These can either be written, or discussed with your assessor. You’ll need to gather evidence of your work, and a witness testimony signed by a colleague or by another manager. 

Throughout your course, we’ll complete two video site visits. We can also gain evidence via videos taken by yourself. As well as this, we can carry out discussions about your work.
