Get NVQ qualified and improve your employability

         You can also obtain an NVQ qualification in make-up.

         Externally accredited qualifications increase your chances of getting jobs as employers recognise these qualifications as work ready in the same way as GCSE's and A levels in other subjects.

         Accredited qualifications are recognised both nationally and internationally e.g. NVQ's inEngland & Wales and SVQ's in Scotland. The opportunity to work abroad or on cruise ships is significantly increased by having these qualifications accredited externally.

         You will be able to obtain public liability insurance.

         Some advanced courses require an accredited qualification as a pre-requisite for the course.


How much will it cost to do my NVQ qualification?

NVQ Accreditation Fee - 199

There is an additional one off fee which covers the cost for both registration with each external awarding body and the final examination.


You must register for you NVQ within 8 weeks from the start of your course.
