National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) or Competence-based qualifications reflect the skills and knowledge needed to do a job effectively. They are work-based qualifications that give learners the opportunity to demonstrate their competence in the area of work or job role to which the qualification relates.

NVQs/Competence-based qualifications are outcomes-based with no fixed learning programme, allowing flexibility in their delivery to meet the individual learner’s needs. The qualifications are based on the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for the sector, which define what employees, or potential employees, must be able to do and know, and how well they should undertake work tasks and work roles.


NVQ Engineering Maintenance – Mechanical is specific to those working in a maintenance role. We have engineers from many different industries completing this qualification:

  • Theme Park Maintenance
  • Offshore Maintenance
  • Water Industry Maintenance
  • Wind Turbines Maintenance
  • Gas Turbine Maintenance
  • Manufacturing line maintenance
  • Warehouse/Logistics Industry Maintenance
  • Mobile Cranes Inspection/Testing
  • Fork Lift Truck Maintenance
  • Tool and Plant Hire
