    Welcome to the forums hawk, don`t you have to be employed to do NVQ?

    I'm currently at college doing my Level 2. You start the City and Guilds Diploma then do the NVQ. I think you can do them at the same time, as long as you have found work as you need to be working to get the NVQ.

    Two different things
    NVQ is a hybrid qual, college and site based
    Diploma is college based but different to the NVQ

    That said they are pretty much the same content
