Discuss NVQ level 3. What's involved and how to achieve qualification? in the The Welcome Forum area at

    Hi, this is my first time using this forum or any forum for that matter, so please forgive me if I'm doing it wrong!

    I have been tiling for roughly 12 years. About 3-4 years on job training with no college or course experiance. My family and I have decided that we would really like to emigrate to Australia. In order to do so I believe I need an NVQ level 3 qualification. As I have no college experiance I am unsure how to go about preparing for this or if it is even possible for me to achieve it at all?

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated

    When I did my 'test' ( after tiling for 27 yrs :0) ) , the guy told me the diff for the level 3 was just that included stuff about stone work. Didn't bother with it myself as I just wanted the skilled workers card for site work.

    Most NVQ 3's will be done through a college or training centre that do tiling and have an OSAT assesment team. This may entail you attending a short session with one of their team to find out what experience you have and what you need, and give you guidence for what areas you need to gain experience in to be able to pass that part of the modual. There are no actual exams, just the need to satisfy your assesor that you have the competance to demonstrate to them you can do the work to the standards set down by City&Guilds NVQ3. All the assessing will be conducted on site whilst you are at your daily work. I do not know which colleges/training centres in Scotland do these assesments but there must be some. City&Guilds might be a good place to start or Glasgow Met. used to have an assesor.
