General Information

What Is Involved In Studying This Course?

Depending on the level you choose, you'll cover things like:

  • complying with statutory regulation and organisational safety requirements
  • moving materials within manufacturing operations
  • carrying out shaping, joining, processing and moulding operations
  • making products using computer-controlled equipment
  • analysing inspection results and confirming quality of production.

To gain an NVQ, you will need to show you've got a particular set of 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. They then confirm you've got the skills to do the job well.

For the NVQ Diploma in Performing Manufacturing Operations this will include showing your assessors the various examples of work you've done, including evidence from before you started the NVQ.
