You'll cover many diverse topics such as:
- communicating with the public and communities
- conducting investigations
- interviewing suspects
- presenting evidence at court or other hearings.
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 NVQ in Police Supervisory Management you'll be assessed in the workplace, taking part in professional discussions and preparing accounts and case studies.
