NVQ in Plant Operations

Through our association with Construction Training Academy, Safe-T-Solutions are able to offer NVQs to help candidates achieve the competent operator card either with CPCS or NPORS.

Why is an NVQ needed?

In order to progress from the Trained Operator card to a Competent Operators card and ensure the candidates continued acceptance onto construction sites, completion of an NVQ for the machinery operated is required by CPCS and NPORS.

NVQ Assessment Routes:

The NVQ/QCF is a vocational qualification which means that operators have to prove, through assessment they are fully competent in the workplace and can achieve the standards as set out for the relevant machinery they are operating.

There are two routes of assessment;


  • On Site Assessment and Training
  • The candidate will be assessed at their work place during the course of their normal working duties to show they can achieve the standards required.


Experienced Worker Practical Assessment

  • The candidate will be assessed through a simulated assessment where they undertake specifically designed tasks to shwo they can achieve the standards required.

With either route, the assessor will facilitate and guide the candidate to gather the evidence required to collate into the portfolio which is used to demonstrate competence in each of the required units as set out by the awarding body for the NVQ.

From Level 1 through to Level 7 for senior management, the candidate will be matched with an assessor whose expertise in that sector will ensure a smooth progression through the NVQ.
