What is a Vocationally-Related Qualification (VRQ)?

VRQs provide the knowledge and practical skills required for particular job roles through a structured study-based training programme.  The assessments will often relate to activities carried out during work-based practice and may include an element of assessment in the workplace. 
NEBOSH offers qualifications that combine the testing of knowledge and understanding in written examinations with practical application of learning in the workplace.

VRQs are a popular type of qualification because they are nationally recognised, flexible and offer routes for progression to employment or further study.
