Is there any upfront cost to do my NVQ with Skilllmatch Resources?2018-12-30T23:04:36+00:00

Skillmatch is the first company to offer a ‘Pay as you Go’ weekly payment scheme, making getting your NVQ more affordable. So, no there is no upfront payment to make, you can start straightaway get qualified while you pay.

Many companies will push you to take out a long-term loan which you will pay back over the next few years interest added at around 10% while you pay! With Skillmatch Resources affordable payment scheme there is:-

  • No Loan to repay
  • No Interest to pay
Can I Cancel my NVQ?2018-12-30T23:05:09+00:00

Of course, you  can cancel your NVQ at any time, just email to info@skillmatch.eu with your name and confirmation you wish to cancel. The administration process can take up to 28 days to  withdraw you from your NVQ. At this point no further work will be carried out on your NVQ. If we are able we will see what work has been done and where possible ‘part qualify’ you for the units you have completed.

You can request to start your NVQ up again if you wish, although we can not guarantee how long it will take to restart you or that we can get the same Assessor to work with you again as it is subject to many factors, not least the workload of the Assessors. Demand for our NVQ’s is exceptionally high and Assessors are often fully booked.

How do I get my NVQ?2018-12-31T19:26:54+00:00

Brief overview of the stages of the process

  • You are booked in and complete your ‘Get Started’ Session at our offices to complete all the required paperwork (Usually done within 1hr).
  • Shortly following your registration, we will assign the best matching Assessor to work with you to collect the evidence needed to get you qualified.
  • Your Assessor will work with you visiting your place of work to develop and build your NVQ portfolio over duration of the course (3-6mths NVQ L2, 3-12 mths NVQ L3) gathering and building relevant and appropriate evidence for your chosen qualification.
  • Once the Assessor is satisfied he submits portfolio for final check.
  • Once confirmed that your portfolio meets standards requires and sanctions we will apply for your NVQ certificate.
  • Once your NVQ certificate arrives we will post it out to you. (Provided all or full payment has been received)
How long does it take to get my NVQ Certificate?2019-01-01T03:58:30+00:00

The time it takes to get you your NVQ certificate depends on what evidence the Assessor can get towards your qualification. Given good communication between you and your Assessor and all elements of the qualification are being carried out on your site with the opportunity for you to demonstrate this to your Assessor to record then there is a chance it can take just 3 months, but it requires a lot of good planning and you need to demonstrate all aspects of the qualification requirements on site within this time frame.

Lots of companies offer a loan to pay for an NVQ why don’t you?2019-01-01T03:59:50+00:00

Skillmatch Resources in the past also offered this as  a way for learners to fund their NVQ. But we decided to offer our ‘Pay as you Go’ weekly payment scheme for the following reasons:-

  • It is a cheaper way to fund your qualification with no interest to pay
  • A lot of learners were uncomfortable having a large loan hanging over them for many years
  • Not all learners were eligible for a loan so could not get their qualification
  • There is NO loan available for NVQ L2 it is for NVQ L3 and over
  • With BREXIT and our imminent exit from the EU the loan entitlement may well not be available as it was originally only available to EU members. So, with the uncertainty we have taken a positive action to ensure we can continue to help learners get the qualifications they want and need.
Are my payments an expense and so can be used to reduce my end of year tax liability?2019-01-01T04:00:47+00:00

The payments you make are a legitimate business expense and in the same way as other business expenses can be used to reduce your earnings in the tax year and thus reduce your tax liability.
