Vocational Qualifications (VQs)
VQs are vocational qualifications which are designed to allow learners to learn in a way that suits them, and give learners the skills that employers are looking for. Occupational VQs are designed to meet the national occupational standards (NOS) for a particular sector or area of work and employers rely on these qualifications for evidence that an employee is competent to carry out the job.
