I'm a college lecturer. NVQ means national vocational qualification, as such you can only do an NVQ if you are employed and doing the work specific to that nvq.

So to do an nvq 3 you will need to be working at, or at least have access to those specific nvq 3 work. So you may tell your boss that you are doing this at college for you nvq and you need experience in doing that type of work.

I may be that you are not doing all the work to get all the nvq units to get a full nvq, as such you can just do the specific units that you want and do the others at a later date to get a qualification.
