NVQ Course Prospectus


NVQ are the Nationally Recognised Qualifications that are regulated by our industry sector body HABIA, after undergoing a process of consultation with industry and the agreement through the HABIA Beauty, Nail and Spa Forums. The qualifications are centred around demonstrating skill competence within a real working situation. NVQ's are available at Levels 1, 2 or 3 and they fulfil the roles of assistant, junior and senior therapists respectively. NVQ courses are only available at registered centres, which adhere to approved inspection criteria.

All NVQ courses include the process of tuition, home study, written assignments and assessment. As a quality control process this evidence is internally monitored and finally externally verified, which leads to certification.

All NVQ courses require the candidate to submit a portfolio of evidence and to demonstrate a stated number of competent performances covering a number of practical ranges. Candidates will be provided with full guidance for the evidence requirements and will be individually supported on each course. A full level can be studied in one go, or individual modules as required until a level is achieved.
