NVQ Success Shines Through

Aug 1, 2010

D. G. Controls Ltd has been an Investor in People for 10 years this year, and still takes its certification seriously, part of which is providing training as necessary to develop individuals in their roles.

It is therefore our great pleasure to congratulate Angie Beal, Caran Gibson and Carol Hartley from our manufacturing team on their being awarded the NVQ Performing Manufacturing Operations.  Evaluation of the ladies took place over the duration of six months, and involved group and individual discussions with the tutor, observations of the ladies working at various aspects of their day-to-day jobs, and assessment of their written responses to questions about why and how they do their jobs in a certain way.  The PMO NVQ qualification recognises the individual’s understanding of their role within the organisation, their responsibility to Health & Safety in the workplace, and most importantly that they understand how to do their jobs and the impact of effective performance.

Somewhat nervous before they started the course, the awarding of the NVQ is just reward for the hard work these ladies put in, and is particularly well-deserved as they had all left school with no formal qualifications.  Angie put it well, saying “It was quite difficult at first to understand some of the questions, with not having done anything like this before, but I soon got into my stride and quite enjoyed it.  It has given me a lot more insight into how the business works, and I am really quite chuffed to have been awarded one.”

Hats-off to you, ladies, and well done.
