Hi

That would be a good Idea if this was the case we would all love to do it.

As far as I know the NVQ is the same as the SVQ both of which are a national qualifications I do know that it is possible to do SQV level 2 and 3 in Nail technology and I assume that this is the case for NVQ also.

Your next move if you wish to take your qualification to a higher standered on paper would possible to achive and assessor award such as A1 which you can then use to teach and assess students.

Usually NVQ, SVQ, and A1 assessor awards can be done through your local college

Hope this has been of some use to you
Kind regards
Tracey:hug:

Hi, I teach nvq 2 beauty therapy at the moment but are about to start teaching C&G nail services 2 in September.
I if iam being really dumb but I didnt really understand your question re NVQ's!:confused:
If you have no nvq's at the moment you would need to do level 2 first in one system and then go onto do nail technology nvq3, in which you need to learn all three systems and about 4 other units which make up the full level 3.

HTH.

:hug:

PS if you go onto the City & guilds website you should be albe to find a college which offer these courses in your area.

Ye it is the same, in scotland they have SVQ but here we have NVQ. they are the same qualification to my knowledge. :hug:

Even though you have all three systems qualification, are they company certificates?
If you are wanting to teach nails you must have a nationally recognised certificate in the systems and also have a teaching qualification. But to teach NVQ students and assess them you need to hold your A1 / D32 or D33.

Is it that you are wanting to go into teaching?

Why not work to become a master in all systems if you are just wanting to be the best.
I am not saying that one or the other is the best.

In my own little world
You CANNOT just change your qualification to an NVQ/SNVQ 'S' stands for Scotish,N stands for National so there is no difference between S or N as an actual qualification.LOL

I think with your qualifications that you already have you are doing well,however the only thing you need to remember is that one day it may be that we all have to hold an NVQ or similar.That's been the gossip for sometime anyway.I had a brand qualification only,and then went to college to do my NVQ,some colleges do an NVQ in Creative products so that would be a real benefit to you.

You will no doubt find the NVQ course of great interest,you already have your practical skills you will just need to home in on your theory.HTH

Sorry I forgot to say that you cant just be assessed once and gain your nvq it would be a full course, which like babsan has already sadi you might find it very interesting and gain even more knowledge!
Also another thing to remember is that most places recognise NVQ's more than company named qualifications. (other than creative quals):hug:

I Think you may find courses are full if you enquire in Sept, You need to enquire now. Most colleges are open all year round ( apart from a few days over Christmas and new Year) You may find that you are even too late for this Academic Years intake ( 07/08)

Some Colleges have a January intake, so that maybe an option for you to look at, rather than wait until Sept 08.

If you have done a nail course and are qualified then you can just take the NVQ assessments. That is waht I have done. There are individual companies that do this you do not have to go to college to get your NVQ award.

Good luck x
