What's involved in studying this course?

You could choose an NVQ in:

  • Front office
  • Housekeeping
  • Food and beverage service
  • Food production and cooking
  • Professional cookery
  • Hospitality services.

To gain an NVQ, you need to show you've got a particular set of skills. You usually work with your training provider to review your current skills and find the best way to gain new ones - perhaps by trying new things at work, or by studying.

NVQs are assessed at work or in a simulated workplace. For each unit your assessor watches and asks questions as you perform a task, or looks at a portfolio of work that you've built as formal evidence of your learning. Then they confirm you've got the skills to do the job well.

For the NVQs in Hospitality and Catering you will gain evidence in your workplace as well as learning with your training provider.
