Overview

NVQs are designed to be taken at a pace that suits your needs, so many learners take about six months to a year to complete. They are outcome-based with no fixed learning programme, allowing flexibility of delivery to meet your individual needs. To earn a qualification, you must complete ten mandatory units

Recognised route to Graduate Membership of IOSH, now at Level 6, the same as a degree, or other recognised diplomas, such as NEBOSH and NCRQ.

The Level 5 NVQ Diploma in Occupational Health & Safety Practice has been updated with the NEW Level 6.  If you already hold a Level 4/5 NVQ in Health & Safety you can upgrade to level 6.

Aim

The overall qualification will give you expertise in areas such as the essentials of health and safety culture, policy, communications systems, individual and organisational competence, risk control, reactive and proactive monitoring systems, review systems, emergency response systems and procedures and improvements to influence health and safety practice.

There are 10 mandatory units the learner must achieve to pass:

  • Promote a positive health and safety culture

NVQs are internally and externally assessed by Awarding Organisation. All work/evidence will be submitted through our e-portfolio system where it will get quality checked by your designated tutor before being sent off to be assessed.

Am I Suitable?

Due to the very nature of a Health & Safety NVQ being a work-based assessment, you just need to ensure that you are in a position in your current role to be able to collect the evidence required for your portfolio. If you already hold any NEBOSH Certificate or NVQ Level 3 in Health & Safety, we only need to confirm that you are currently working in a role where Occupational Health & Safety is a key part of your job.

  • FREE MENTORING to CMIOSH once completed.
