TUTIS – SHE KNOWS has provided health and safety NVQ’s for people with a career in health and safety since they were introduced.

An NVQ is a qualification that is based on nationally agreed standards and recognises the competence of a person in a work situation. They give people credit for what they do in their job role on a day to day basis, unlike traditional qualifications that rely on teaching and examinations.

  • Available without need for prior qualifications.
  • Free from prescribed ways of learning.
  • Based on nationally recognised standards of competence.
  • After your initial induction/assessment workshop no structured classroom session is required – it is essentially a distance learning approach.
  • No awarding body enrolment dates to work to – you can start when you like.
  • No end of course examinations to work to – you can finish as soon as you are ready.
  • Uses assessment of the outcomes of learning. You demonstrate that you have put the various health and safety topics you have learnt into practice.
  • You cannot fail an NVQ, if your work is not complete enough to meet the criteria it can be done again and re-submitted.


Unlike health and safety training courses and qualifications that rely on teaching and examinations, a health and safety NVQ uses a person’s performance in their job role as a basis for assessment and recognises their competence in a real work situation. Health and safety NVQs are work-based and involve the collection of evidence from your normal day to day activities. Assessment methods can include:

  • Direct observation
  • Documentary and other product-based evidence
  • Performance of activities in the workplace
  • Personal report by the candidate endorsed by colleagues.
  • Witness testimony

’Competent’ is defined within NVQs as: “The ability to perform to the standards required in employment across a range of circumstances and to meet changing demands”.
