FAQs > NVQ > What are National Vocational Qualifications?

Search the FAQ for entries containing:

National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) offer working photographers the opportunity to demonstrate their abilities in terms of photographic, business and inter-personal skills and to be awarded recognised qualifications. You may think qualifications are just worthless bits of paper, and on their own that’s partially true, but remember that to make the cut and to get on a short-list for a job, you often need qualifications. They not only demonstrate your skill but also show your ability to learn and your potential to apply that learning. Even if you're not just looking to improve your CV, gaining qualifications involves you in studying photography and photographers, practicing new or innovative techniques and developing your style of photography so that you are better fitted to survive and progress in the world of professional photography.

You can deepen your understanding, and strengthen your practical skills, widen the scope of your visual abilities and answer those questions you are hesitant to ask others about in case it makes you look silly. And believe me, whatever your level, that happens to all of us.
