What is the NVQ Level 2 Certificate in Interior Systems?

The NVQ Level 2 Certificate in Interior Systems is a qualification designed to recognise the skills and experience of those already working with interior systems, particularly dry lining, or plasterboard lining, in the construction sector.

This qualification recognises that individuals will specialise in different types of interior construction system and so offers two different pathways for learners to choose from. Learners must select the pathway most relevant to their role or experience, either dry lining finishing or dry lining border.

Once a pathway has been selected, all four units within their chosen pathway must be completed.

Both pathways cover the following mandatory topics:

  • General health, safety, and welfare in the workplace.
  • Productive working practices.
  • Moving, handling, and storing resources.

Depending on which of the two pathways you have chosen, the fourth unit of study covers either finishing dry lining walls and ceilings or installing plasterboard linings.

Who is this qualification for?

The Level 2 NVQ Certificate in Interior Systems (Construction) qualification provides a nationally recognised qualification for those working in this specialised area of construction.

Evidence of your competence may be recorded in the form of paperwork or audio or video recordings and may be comprised of any of the following:

All candidates are assigned a qualified assessor when they begin the qualification.

Your assessor will act as your point of contact whilst you complete the qualification, answering any questions you may have and helping you to gather evidence when required. Your assessor is likely to visit you in your workplace at least once to observe you on the job.

Once you and your assessor are satisfied that your portfolio is complete, it will then be submitted to the exam board. If they are happy that the evidence demonstrates your competence, then you will be awarded the level 2 certificate.
