City & Guilds NVQ Training Courses
City & Guilds is a world leading vocational education organisation.
City and Guilds has a wide range of qualifications across a variety of sectors. Their qualifications are delivered in more than 10,000 training centres across the world and are respected by employers. Health and safety awards are provided as part of their highly regarded range of vocational qualification. They are established National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) and are globally recognised qualifications that help individuals develop their talents and abilities, enabling career progression.
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.
- 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.
- A way of proving your competence by what you do in your workplace.
- The work you do to meet your NVQ will help you in your job.
- You cannot fail an NVQ, if your work is not complete enough to meet the criteria it can be done again and re-submitted.
- No need to be absent from work to attend classroom study - it is essentially a distance 'learning' approach to gaining a qualification.
- You could complete your qualification in six months or less.
- Enables membership of IOSH and IIRSM.
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.
’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”.
ACT has provided health and safety NVQ’s for people with a career in health and safety since they were introduced. Our qualified health and safety tutors use their experience to help you fulfil the requirements of your chosen NVQ and complete your qualification. Take your City & Guilds qualification with ACT and you can expect the highest level of learning support.

Our e-portfolio system is easy to use. It contains details of the criteria required to meet the qualification requirements, a ‘wizard’ that helps you file evidence and link it to the criteria. Our e-portfolio even has a diary to help with planning and many features we have added from our experience that will help you gather evidence and achieve your qualification efficiently. You can even buy an e-portfolio app, which includes the ability to capture evidence without the need for internet access using your mobile device/tablet and upload it to your e-portfolio when you are online.
