These NVQ’s are aimed at supervisors, first line and middle managers and cater for the generalist manager. The role of a manager in a small organisation is likely to be broader than of that in a large one. Therefore, the management NVQ’s have to be considerably more flexible in their structure. A wide range of alternative options can be found within most of the awards, which enable organisations and individuals to match closely their work-related training and development needs to these qualifications.
The level 3 NVQ is broadly aimed at supervisors who are responsible for the control of activities and work output of small teams. Whilst this includes roles such as senior charge hand and junior office manager, the qualification is not solely aimed at a discrete level of organisational hierarchy. It is as appropriate for those who manage “sideways” and “upwards” in the context of a project group, as for those people who have regular charge over a fixed team.
This qualification is intended to be the first stage in a progression leading to first line, middle and senior management and may be used as a stepping-stone to gaining an NVQ in a more specialised area.
