On site assessment

In the case of Occupational Work Supervision it is very important that additional paperwork evidence is collected showing that you regularly carry out Supervisory tasks such as conducting Toolbox Talks and Safety Inductions, ordering and receiving deliveries of materials and taking part in site meetings. This evidence can be in the forms of Toolbox Talks and Induction Safety registers signed by the candidate as well as Delivery Notes, Purchase Orders and Minutes of Site Meeting with the candidate’s name on them. Copies of these documents are normally easily obtainable from the candidate’s employer or client. There is also a requirement for a tape-recorded discussion with assessor at the end of the assessment to confirm candidate’s work knowledge.

How long does it take?

The minimum length of the assessments from the candidate’s registration to the actual achievement of the NVQ is about three months and the maximum is twenty four months.
