Levels[ edit ] NVQs are competence-based qualifications.
Students study the following national curriculum subjects until the end of year English, mathematics, science, design and technology, a modern foreign language, information and communication technology, physical education and religious education.
Courses in most of these subjects will lead to a qualification. Many students also take qualifications in a range of other subjects. Students not yet ready for level 1 qualifications may take entry level eg certificate of achievement qualifications and then progress to level 1.
In mathematics there are three tiers: GCSE is available in three sizes: This is the science qualification taken by most students at the end of key stage 4.
These qualifications cover half the subject content of a GCSE and are usually taught in half the time, enabling students to study a programme of greater breadth.
Short course GCSE is available in art, design and technology, geography, history, information and communication technology, modern foreign languages, music, physical education and religious studies.
Assessment of GCSE is usually by external assessment and coursework, with the balance towards external assessment. The proportion of coursework is higher in some creative and practical subjects. Skills such as spoken language and practical and investigative skills are assessed in addition to the knowledge and understanding detailed in the specification.
Students develop the knowledge, skills and understanding relevant to a broad vocational area and may have experience of work within that area.
GNVQ is available in different sizes. At foundation and intermediate levels there are three- or six-unit qualifications.
Assessment is by coursework a portfolio of workwhich is internally assessed, and by external test. The internal component contributes two-thirds of the final marks and the external component one-third. GNVQ foundation qualifications are awarded at pass, merit and distinction grades.
At foundation level the six-unit GNVQ is available in the titles above and a further six titles: To be awarded the Key Skills Qualification, students must achieve a level, but not necessarily the same level, in each of the three key skills.
A profile of achievement could record, for example, communication and application of number at level 1 and information and communication technology at level 2.
The Key Skills qualification is assessed internally students produce a portfolio of evidence demonstrating the application of the key skills and externally by tests.
Links between other qualifications and the key skills are used to provide exemptions for some or all of the assessment for the key skill unit. NVQs are based on national occupational standards and do not have to be completed within a specific length of time.
They can be taken by school and college students who have a work placement or part-time job enabling them to develop the appropriate skills.
Assessment takes place in the workplace. Students who attain foundation level GNVQ may progress to intermediate level and may choose to do so in the same or a different vocational area from their initial study. Students who attain level 1 qualifications may also progress to other vocationally-related courses, for example, BTECs.
Qualifications such as these will be submitted for inclusion in the national qualifications framework on a rolling programme to be completed in September Young people who enter training or employment with training may work towards NVQ at level 1 or level 2.
