Electrical Installations
Performance Units (Portfolio)

The City and Guilds Level 3 NVQ is required to apply for the JIB ECS Gold Card. To work on JIB building sites you will need their ECS card to be recognised as an Electrician. This is often the final course needed in becoming an Electrician. 

The 2357 NVQ requires candidates to have successfully completed their Level 3 Diploma and to be working in the industry.

We offer three versions of the NVQ;

The 2357-44 Variation is for students with the 2365 Level 3 Diploma.

The 2357-34 Variation is for students with the 2330 Level 3 Diploma. 

The 2357-91 Variation is for students with the 8202 Level 3 Diploma.

If you do not have a level 3 Diploma already, please speak with our course advisors regarding the Experienced Workers NVQ 2346 or starting one of our other courses. 

2357 NVQ level 3 portfolio example of what and how to meet the criteria will be given on your induction. We will complete your NVQ with the majority of evidence being from Photographs, Observations and Professional discussions in our online easy to use system.

Course Content

Your knowledge and skills are assessed by performance units, consisting of real evidence you will collect from your onsite workplace. The 2357 Level 3 NVQ covers the Domestic, Commercial and Industrial sectors across a range of units, the work will require evidence from new Installations as listed below:

  • Health and Safety

  • Applying Legislation

  • Organisation

  • First Fix

  • Second Fix

  • Inspection and Testing

  • Fault Finding

  • AM2 (The AM2 must be taken at an approved "NET Centre," and is an additional cost)

  • A Short theory Bridging Unit

 

The 2357 NVQ level 3 is a portfolio of your onsite work. Unlike the classroom or online learning based courses, the NVQ is creating a portfolio containing examples of tasks you have completed as an Electrician onsite. It is necessary to keep up to date with the latest standards, technologies and practices in the industry when gathering your evidence. 

You can take the NVQ at your own pace and complete it as quickly as you like – with the average time being around six months. There is however a maximum time limit of three years, after which you would have to re-register and recomplete, including payment.

 

The units can be done in any order, we can assist you if require further guidance.
