- Enrol on a one-day course
- Plan with, prepare and assess two learners on a section of their Diploma portfolio with the help of a Summerhouse Assessor & complete the TAQA Assessors Award (Level 3).
This must be completed within 18 months of attending the Assessors Course.
When an Assessor has the TAQA award they can assess on their own merit & hence gain maximum funding available
What if you or your learners don't want to do NVQ's - or, what if you're unsure about doing NVQs - but need funding for training?
Whether you wish to train for BHS, ABRS or NVQ exams, NVQ's are the answer
Read on ...
Many people are still wary of NVQs as they are a new style, workbased qualification.
People do not realise that they can continue to train for their BHS or ABRS exams, as the syllabuses are almost identical to NVQs.
The main difference is that the government currently only fund NVQs.
If a trainee has BHS Stage 2 they only have to do a small part of the NVQ Level 2 to gain
a NVQ Level 2 & functional skills qualification, leading to an Apprenticeship.
If a trainee has BHS Stage 3 they only have to do part of the NVQ Level 3 to gain an NVQ Level
3 & functional skills qualification, leading to an Advanced Apprenticeship
NVQ's are ideal for people who suffer from exam nerves, because you do not have to take a final exam,(with the exception of a paper based Technical Certificate to be completed at the work place). An NVQ qualification is gained through continual work based assessment.
All NVQs can be used to gain direct entry to BHS exams.
ie NVQ Level 2 in Horse Care (Riding) - direct entry to BHS Stage 2 or BHS Stage 3
ie NVQ Level 3 in Horse Care & Management (Riding) - direct entry to BHS Stage 2, 3 or 4.
