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 areas of travel services: (1) travel services, levels 2-4 (supervision and management of travel services); and (2) travel services (field operations), levels 2-4 (field operations of travel services, supervising travel services, and tour directing).
