NVQ LEVEL 2 DIPLOMA IN HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE
NVQ stands for National Vocational Qualifications in England and is equivalent to the Scottish Vocational Qualification (SVQ) in Scotland. NVQs have been the mainstay of British educational frameworks since 1986 and taken on many different forms over the years, for example, the regulatory bodies changing, the grading criteria and the list of subjects offered.
