Upgrade to Level 6 NVQ Occupational Health & Safety Practice

ProQual Awarding Body

Upgrade to the NEW ProQual Level 6 NVQ Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety Practice!!

What is involved in the upgrade?

There is a “mini portfolio” to be completed made up of CPD requirements. The new Level 6 NVQ Diploma Occupational Health & Safety Practice from ProQual Awarding Body is now at the same level as NEBOSH Diploma and other Health & Safety Diplomas. If you are already maintaining CPD with IOSH or IIRSM, most of this evidence will already be available.

The new learning outcomes needed are as follows:

  1. an ongoing evaluation of their personal competence – use your IOSH/IIRSM CPD
  2. reflective commentaries on CPD activities – use IOSH/IIRSM CPD
  3. setting and prioritising realistic goals for professional development – use IOSH/IIRSM CPD
  4. applying professional ethics in practice – reflective account along with evidence to support (applying the IOSH code, for example)
  5. an appreciation of diversity and inclusivity in workplaces – reflective account on how you have applied this, with evidence to support appreciation, in practice
  6. sharing personal experiences in professional debate and discussion – reflective account with evidence to support sharing

What guidance and support will I receive?

  • Video guides on how to complete the new outcomes.
  • Guidance on how to submit your work to your assessor, quickly and easily, using our online e-portfolio.
  • Experienced assessors who have also completed this upgrade.

What do our past learners have to say?

“Right from the initial enquiry, to the completion of my course, I found all members of the team extremely helpful, friendly, professional, and efficient. The level of communication and interaction was exceptional. Costing of the course was extremely competitive too (Level 6 NVQ diploma occupational health and safety practice upgrade), with only a few companies offering this upgrade, this was the obvious choice. Highly recommended. Thanks to all the staff at Cognitia”
