    What we deliver

    National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) are work-based qualifications that give candidates the opportunity to develop and demonstrate their competence in their chosen field to which the qualification relates. NVQs are based on recognised occupational standards for the appropriate sector. Occupational standards define what employees, or potential employees, must be able to do and know, and how well they should undertake work tasks and work roles. These standards are written in broad terms to enable employers and providers to apply them to a wide range of related occupational areas. NVQs are outcome based with no fixed learning programme, therefore allowing flexible delivery to meet the individual learner’s needs. At Level 2 and above, these qualifications are recognised as approved training courses for employees that have been in the workplace for some time or as a way of inducting, training and developing new entrants into the workplace.

    We offer a suite of qualifications currently ranging from level two to Level four in the following subject areas

    • Wood Occupations
    • Trowel Occupations
    • Construction Operations
    • Occupational Work Supervision

    Coming Soon

    Online registrations – we’re currently working on ways to make it even easier for you to access our courses, online registrations is just one of those.

    Aim high – SJS is dedicated to increasing productivity of our clients and improving the pay and prospects of their staff. To support this we will soon deliver Level five, six and seven NVQ’s.
