The NSQ system - Who does/do what

 

Sector skills councils: identify, define and update employment-based standards of competence for agreed occupations. These people effectively represent the interests of the trade or industry concerned, to which the particular NSQ relates. Sector Bodies define what the job entails. For government led sector skills council, the composition should be 70 % industry/ employers and 30% trade unions, professional associations, academia etc.

 

Awarding bodies: design assessment and quality assurance systems, and gain sector bodies endorsement prior to submission to NBTE for accreditation of the qualification. Awarding bodies approve training and assessment centres to offer NSQs. implement and assure quality of the NSQs . Awarding Bodies are basically the top-level training certification organisations (the ones whose names and logos are on the certificates). They don't deliver the training, they design the structures of the qualifications and accredit the certification, which the training organisations and Assessment Centres use and deliver.

Awarding Bodies engage with client organisations if they are large enough to have their own NSQ training and delivery departments. Awarding bodies engage with Sector Bodies and training organisations. Training organisations are effectively distributors of the Awarding Bodies' qualifications systems.

They undertake external verification to ensure that candidates are being assessed fairly and consistently across all centres.

 

Regulatory Body: NBTE accredits proposals for qualifications submitted by awarding bodies, and monitors Awarding bodies offering NSQs. NBTE effectively manages the whole system on behalf of the Government.

 

Assessment centres: assess NSQs according to Awarding body criteria.

 

Training providers: deliver NSQ training in partnership with the industry, register candidates, assess and guide candidates towards achieving NSQs.

The following have been approved so far to support the institutionalisation of NSQs in Nigeria.
