Who We Are
Our original company was Logistic Support Services first formed in 1985, providing operator training and NVQ’s to the industrial and construction sectors. We renamed the company in 2005 to reflect our growth and diversity into a much more comprehensive training provision and now offer training in industrial, construction, health and safety, logistics and management sectors. NPVSL is now one of the leading national work based vocational training providers.
NPVSL offers and extensive range of short courses, from novice plant operator to site safety management courses to support individuals and employers develop their skills base. Most of the training is done in the work place, although the company can arrange training venues if preferred.
National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ’s) awards, certificates and diplomas are available to support the construction and related industries.
Adult Skills Budget funding contracts for NVQ’s through our membership with the Consortium of Vocational and Educational Training (COVET) enabling us to offer both funded and commercial one stop training solutions.
National Plant Vocational Skills is committed to maintaining the highest quality standards. We have established a comprehensive quality assurance programme and undergo self assessment annually to ensure continuous improvement is maintained.
As a member of the Consortium of Vocational and Educational Trainers (COVET) our contract with the Adult Skills Budget of the Skills Funding Agency – which may be match funded through the European Commission means we are subject to regular inspections by Ofsted. At our most recent inspection we were assessed as ‘Good’.
We are regularly monitored by each of our awarding bodies and by our funding organisations
