This qualification is designed to reflect the activities and responsibilities of experienced advice and guidance practitioners, working in a senior role with some managerial and/or training responsibility. They will be supporting other practitioners, have a dynamic relationship with a variety of other organisations and may be creating information which is then disseminated either by themselves in the practitioner role or in the form of published material.

Our NVQs are fully supported through our online portfolio system (OneFile).

The portfolio can be accessed at any time, e.g. at home or in the workplace which makes the submission of work much simpler.
There is no requirement to attend College. The assessor will assess in the workplace, provide an induction onto the online portfolio and through subsequent contact, will carry out observations at work, obtain testimonies from colleagues and carry out professional discussions, set knowledge questions and use appropriate work product.
