Competency-based Qualifications

We offer a range of competency-based qualifications, including NVQs, that are designed for employees who are already working within an industry. These courses offer them a route to formalise their skills and knowledge with a recognised qualification, or provide opportunities to upskill and develop professionally, and they assessed through work-based evidence, observations and portfolios, carried out within their own workplace* so no college attendance is required.

*A number of these qualifications can also alternatively be delivered at Dearne Valley College's Manver campus, and this is indicated in the course information. For more information about this, please contact the Business Training team at businesstraining@dearne-coll.ac.uk
