* Assessors and quality assurance staff who deliver QCF qualifications that use the term NVQ in their title will also need these qualifications.
* Depending on the assessment strategies set by individual Sector Skills Councils, some staff, who are assessing and quality assuring qualifications within the QCF that do not use the term NVQ in their titles, but whose purpose is to confirm occupational competence, will need to hold IQA or EQA qualifications.
