NVQ Scheme Implementation
Putting Training to Work
Experience has shown that in order to achieve maximum benefit from training it is essential to have a coherent process that ensures acquired skills are safely and effectively consolidated in the workplace. NVQs meet the standards set by industry and the process of assessment and independent verification is widely accepted as the best way of ensuring employees are competent, especially those newly trained.
NVQs can also provide the means for specifying on-the-job training programmes leading to nationally recognised standards and they can apply to staff under training or to those who are experienced but lack the recognition of formal qualifications. Further, an NVQ programme can lead to a full award or to tailored schemes focused on specific needs and the process is fully endorsed by Unite, the engineering trades union.
As a national training provider, L.I.T.S. has delivered and managed a wide range of NVQ implementation schemes, since such schemes were introduced in the early 90s, for many companies in the industrial sector. Schemes range from individuals who have specific up-skilling needs to company-wide multiskilling programmes.
