To get a Vocationally Related Qualification (VRQ) you learn with your training provider - maybe through practical sessions, group discussions or assignments.
VRQs are usually assessed by your training provider using assignments, practical task, exams or online tests.
For the Introductory Certificate and the Certificate in Basic Construction Skills, you'll learn the key elements of the unit through practical activities. This includes learning basic health and safety as well as good working practices.
You'll demonstrate your progress through practical assignments. There is also an optional multiple-choice online exam covering health, safety and working practices. It's a good idea to take this optional exam if you're thinking of progressing to another qualification.
This is available at Level 1.
