Britain's National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) are work qualifications that measure what an employee or potential employee can do as well as how much he or she knows and understands about a particular job. Used as written proof of usable workplace skills that can be put to profitable use by an employer, NVQs range from basic Level 1, for everyday routine tasks, up to Level 5 professional skills, providing a way to develop skills and build a career ladder that benefits both employer and employee. This packet contains NVQ competency lists for the following jobs: (1) care, level 2 (developmental care, direct care, domiciliary support, postnatal care, residential and hospital support, and special care needs); and (2) health care---physiological measurement, level 3 (audiology, neurophysiology, and respiratory measurements).
