Course Description

How You Learn - The NVQ is not a taught course but is based on evidence you produce using a computer in your normal working day.  The trainers will observe your work and assess how you use a computer.  This evidence is then used to demonstrate that you are competent in the use of IT. 

The level of NVQ that you take will be assessed and will depend on your current skills and knowledge.

Entry Requirements - This course is free and open to anyone who is currently employed and lives or works in Greater Manchester.  You should not currently hold a qualification higher than NVQ2. 

The centre may still be able to offer you a course even if you do not meet this criteria. Please contact us for more details.

How long will it take? - There is no set time limit to complete the award, you can work at your own pace.
