Course Details

Product number: NVQ_L3_RFOC|SW10061

To provide recognition of skills and knowledge on a range of responsibilities associated with roofing occupations, including installations, outstripping and reclamation.

NVQ Level 3 delegates are often also involved in decision making, quality checks and work planning. It is not expected that delegates working in this industry all do the same activities or use the same equipment and machinery, so the qualification has been developed to make it as widely available as possible by having 3 distinct pathways. All work completed must be carried out in accordance with Building Regulations and Industry recognised safe working practices, including the disposal of waste. The qualification is structured to ensure that there is a high degree of flexibility within the pathways and units available and will allow employees from companies of all sizes and specialisms equal opportunity to complete.

  • Introduction to the qualification, usually taking place at an external centre – this will include paperwork for sign-up and registering with the awarding body.
  • Delegates will be provided with Knowledge Packs that they may complete in their own time; identifying the delegate’s current knowledge and skill set.
  • Following Completion of the Knowledge Packs, the Practical Observation will begin. This will be on the learner’s site, and may include visits from your assessor who will observe you working and offer support. Delegates may also be asked to record observations on camera for review by the assessor, on practical elements such as pre-shift and operation checks on the machinery.
  • There will then be a collection of Witness Testimonies (from site Supervisor’s / Manager’s etc.) and Additional Evidence by the assessor.
  • Finally, a one-to-one Professional Discussion will take place between the assessor and the delegate which will identify the pathway to be undertaken and the units that wish to be covered.
