Level 3 Diploma in Fencing
The Level 3 Diploma in Fencing (NVQ) is based on the National Occupational Standards which reflect the working practices of fence installers. The standards were developed by a group representing employers, fencing manufacturers and contractors, training organisations and other organisations with an interest in fencing, such as the Highways Agency and Railtrack.
The qualification aims to give candidates the opportunity to develop their skills and demonstrate competence across the full range of activities that fencing supervisors need to be able to do as part of their everyday work.
The qualification also allows candidates to select units which apply to work in general fencing.
The structure of the qualification also enables Continual Professional Development activities. The evidence is then recorded for those candidates who may not want the full qualification.
This qualification has evolved from the Level 3 NVQ in Fencing and has a direct link to the National Occupational Standards.
How is your Level 3 Diploma in Fencing achieved?
To achieve the diploma you must build a portfolio of evidence to prove your competence in the job in line with the national occupational standards.
Our team of assessors will carry out work based observations. They will also record evidence of your competency at the task in hand. The assessor will also question you to ensure you have all the relevant knowledge and understanding.
The assessor will work in partnership with the candidate to collect evidence. They ensure that you meet both the performance criteria and the knowledge and understanding criteria.
The Diploma alone, does not teach you new skills, but confirms you are able to undertake the task. Furthermore, if during the process training needs are identified they can be delivered via the FaCT training department in agreement with Fact and your employer.
