National / Scottish Vocational Qualifications (N/SVQs)

NVQs (SVQs in Scotland) are practical work-based qualifications that are recognised by employers and colleges throughout the UK. They are awarded to people who have proved their skill, knowledge and understanding of all aspects of their job. These qualifications demonstrate an individual's occupational competence in their job role.

Here at PHW, we do our best to work around your workforce so that their CPD doesn't manage to get in the way of their daily work load.  We assist with achieving such N/SVQ qualifications as:
