NVQ Assessment Process
Normally, it takes 2 site visits to cover all assessment requirements, but this may vary depending upon your ability and motivation to collaborate with the assessor.
Once you have applied for the NVQ Level 2 Boarding / Tacking assessment and training course, you will be assigned a dedicated assessor for your NVQ boarding assessment who will provide support and guidance to help you achieve your certificate.
Our expert assessor will conduct an On-Site Assessment & Training (ASAT) course, which means that no days off work are required. The assigned assessor will agree to a meeting at your workplace on a day and time suitable for you. Then, with your help and involvement, your assessor will decide on the assessment methods , such as monitoring your job as well as asking questions to give you a chance to demonstrate your knowledge of all the relevant guidelines and requirements.
Before beginning the NVQ Level 2 Boarding / Tacking assessment program, you'll discuss all aspects of your employment situation with the assessor and confirm the assessment end date. Once you both agree on a realistic and achievable end date, the assessment can start.
The assessment program may take up to six months from start to finish; however, the assessment timeframe can vary and largely depends on your circumstances, motivation, as well as your capability to provide the assessor with all the needed information for the NVQ Level 2 Boarding / Tacking qualification.
