The Utilisation of NVQs in Higher Education
Morgan, Arthur
Education & Training, v44 n2 p90-98 2002
In 2000 a survey was undertaken in an attempt to establish a sustainable, coherent database of empirical information on NVQ level 3, 4 and 5 activity in English and Welsh higher education institutions HEIs. As a result of this work a report was produced, "The Utilisation of NVQs in Higher Education in England and Wales," which set out the survey findings. The article reviews the findings of the data collection and highlights a range of issues concerned with accurate and consistent reporting of data by organisations charged with this responsibility. The penetration of NVQs into higher education is discussed and reference made to a number of case studies. These studies offer valuable insights into the ways in which various institutions have addressed the problems of the integration of NVQs into higher education provision.
