This assessment course allows candidates to demonstrate their experience, skills, and obvious understanding of the fundamentals of Ceiling Fixing . Skilled workers will also be able to show their competence in an actual work environment and that they can accomplish ceiling fixing jobs within the building sector.
By committing to start the NVQ Level 2 Ceiling Fixing assessment & training course, you will be evaluated against a set of knowledge and performance assessment criteria, which are sourced from the National Occupational Standards relevant to the work-related area.

NVQ Assessment Process
As soon as you apply for the NVQ Level 2 Ceiling Fixing (suspended ceiling as well as lay-in grid ceiling) assessment & training course, you'll be assigned a dedicated assessor for your NVQ assessment who will provide assistance to help you accomplish your certificate.
Our expert assessor will conduct the On-Site Assessment & Training (ASAT) program, which means that no time off work is required. Your assessor will arrange a visit to your work site on a day and time which suits you. Along with your contribution and involvement, the assessor will arrange the assessment methods — such as observations of your work, discussion, and perhaps written testimony of your past work — in order to collect the best representation of your skills in the Ceiling Fixing trade .
Generally, it takes two meetings with the assessor to cover all assessment requirements, but this might differ, depending on your ability and motivation to cooperate with the assessor.
Before beginning the NVQ level 2 ceiling fixing assessment and training course, you'll discuss all aspects of your employment situation with the assessor to set an end date for the assessment. As soon as you both agree on a practical and achievable completion date, the assessment can begin.
The NVQ assessment program may take up to six months from start to finish; however, the assessment timeframe can differ and significantly relies on your circumstances, motivation , and ability to supply the assessor with the needed info for the NVQ Level 2 Ceiling Fixing qualification.
