Is the National Vocational Qualification higher than the Level 2 Qualification & Credit Framework? | QCS

Hi Sheila, I have done my diploma level 2 Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) in 2017. Everyone is saying National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) is a lot higher than the QCF. Is this right?

Hi Sue,


Neil says: “No, it is not true. QCF level 2 is the replacement for level 2 NVQ.


Same award new name!


Most assessment criteria remained unchanged.”


Hope this helps!


Best Wishes
