Do you need to be working in a specific field to gain a NVQ in that field?
I presume that as they are vocational qualifications, there has to be some kind of practical assessment, but how much? If I can do all the coursework, as there any limit to the number of subjects in which I could gain an NVQ, without actually working in the field?

How much does it cost to do an NVQ course?
asked in NVQs, qualifications, experience

not for most sourses as most nvq courses are done in colleges and uni's so they have the area for assesments if needed

It depends, the higher the level of nvq, the more time you need to spend working within the environment you are training for. Most nvq's require you to be in a classroom for two days a week, with at least one day working within a setting of your chosen field. That would be for a level 2 and 3, if you go up further for level 4-5's then you are expected to be working 'full time' in that subject and you are wanting to advance your career prospects, as these levels are usually only one day a week in the classroom. Though it will vary between the different nvq's.
Most tutors will check and make sure you have a placement within a work setting, either paid or voluntary, if the person on the course isn't already working within the industry.
