NVQ 4 Training & Development – Learning Development


I am about to embark on this NVQ qualification of which I'm not a big fan of NVQ's and after a chat with the Tutor he managed to simplify what it was all about. I have now received the standards book and I'm back to square one thinking that this seems alot more complicated than it might be.
I'm looking for someone who has done the Learning Development NVQ, who can help simplify the whole process and put my mind at ease and let me know that it isn't as complex as the standards book makes out.

  1. views of an assessor
    I have just taken a candidate through the level 4 in leraning & development and while she initially found it daunting eventually realised that a little evidence can go a long way and cross reference to a number of units.

    With the new standards coming in soon though you may be better to wait – I have heard that the language is much more users friendly and they will obviously be more up to date. If you want to look at them you can find them on and click on the box Consultation on Learning development on the home page

  2. NVQ 4 TDLB
    I have recently completed the Level 4 NVQ in training and development, although do not currently have my portfolio of evidence. I am also a trained assessor. If you need any help, please e-mail me on [email protected], then I can let you have information specific to your needs.

  3. Get your head around the format & the rest is easy!!
    I completed this qualification about 18 months ago. Decide why you want to do it first. if you want it badly enough you will do it.
    Secondly get to grips with the format of the NVQ system. I hear the wording is going to change soon.
    Set yourself up a proforma that will help you complete all the relevant sections.
    Start with the bits you find easiest and have the most experience/evidence of/for.
    Plan to do one unit per month or whatever you have time for.
    Give yourself a treat for every one completed.
    Good luck and enjoy!!

  4. You’ll be Fine !
    I completed this at the end of last year including the assessor unit acreditation D32/33 and am now starting Level 5. I am a manager within the purchasing dept of a large European company. I don’t know what your role is but it can be done even if T&D is not your actual job, with the right support I am sure you will be fine. It really is not as difficult as first glance may suggest. I really enjoyed acheiving this qualification and am still taking, those just starting NVQ’s, under my wing as their assessor. If I can be of any assistance or you just need some encouragement please mail me ([email protected]). Go for it !

  5. I have also just started NVQ level 4
    I have just started an NVQ level 4 in Human Resource Development. Do you want to link up so we can swop ideas and thoughts.

    We might be doing some of the same units
