Covid-19 Update

Given the Covid-19 pandemic, the College calendar has been changed for the first term of the 2020/21 academic year and has introduced a two-week October half term break. This break is from Monday 19 to Friday 30 October during which time the College is closed to Learners. The College office will be open from Monday 19 to Friday 23 October (telephone/email enquiries open) and closed from Monday 26 October to Friday 30 October (telephone/email enquiries closed until Monday 2 November). From 2 November we are increasing the areas in which a face mask or covering is required to be worn.

What opportunities will this course give me?

On successful completion of the NVQ Level 2, the progression is onto Level 3 technical certificate and NVQ 3.

What will I be learning?

Mainly site assessment which is planned and completed with qualified assessor. The NVQ 2 is gained by compiling a personal portfolio of completed competencies.

Why is this course for me?

Once you have enrolled onto the programme you will be assigned an assessor that will visit you in the workplace regularly. They will complete assessment plans and reviews with you to keep you on target. They will support you in the collection of the required evidence needed for your qualification through different assessment methods such as; professional discussion, observations, written questions, verbal questions, witness statements and any assignments.

What do I need to sign up?

Level 2 will suit you if you have some relevant plumbing and heating knowledge and skills, usually from a role where you've been supervised. You will need to complete an initial Maths assessment.

Is there anything else I need to know?
