What are NVQs?

NVQ’s are an excellent way to study beauty therapy qualifications at the Oxford International College of Beauty. Standards in NVQ training at OICB are considered to be the very best and recognised in industry for their standards of excellence.

NVQ Levels 2 and 3 can be achieved by a number of different routes and will easily fit in with the student’s commitments and other circumstances.

OICB choose to use ITEC as their awarding body for their NVQs as they offer a well respected qualification. All NVQs are verified by and External Verifier who assesses the standards. In all the years we have delivered NVQs and Apprenticeships we have received excellent feedback from External Verifiers.
