How long does the assessment take?
This all depends on the job you are involved in and the evidence that is available. Typically, this can take around an hour and the evidence collected will contribute towards your NVQ. The assessment will be carefully planned with your assessor and we will encourage you to present as much evidence as possible to ensure you cover as much of the NVQ as possible during the assessment.
