The primary purpose of the NVQ level 2 is to develop and confirm the learner’s occupational competence as a plant operator. As a competence-based qualification, it provides documentation for employers, industry managers and card schemes, that the candidate has the skills and knowledge needed to meet the nationally-recognised standard to carry out the role.

As this is a competence-based qualification, learners will be acquiring the knowledge and skills required through either on-the-job experience or in a learning environment.

This qualification has a range of pathways and is linked to typical job roles that learners will encounter within the industry.
