Spectator Safety Level 3 NVQ Certificate


Spectator Safety Level 3 NVQ Certificate

Course Overview: 

The qualification provides the required knowledge and experience to work as a steward in sports grounds, at music festivals, marches and any other events that require spectator safety and fulfilling the requirements for stewarding set out by the Government in the Green Guide.

The primary target group is stewards who provide services – such as health, safety and security, customer service to help spectators have a safe and enjoyable experience at the event. Typical settings will be events held at either indoor or outdoor facilities including for example, football stadium, indoor arenas and other sport centres.

Whatever context the learner is working in, it is essential that their evidence comes from working with real equipment, facilities and customers, as part of temporary or permanent employment. It is very important that evidence is generated from real work activities, not ‘skills test’ type exercises, set up purely for the sake of assessment.

In addition, simulation and questioning are allowed for a limited number of items in some other units. These are clearly detailed in the evidence requirements. Where simulation is used, this should follow the requirements of the assessment strategy for this NVQ.

This qualification is proof that they have the right skills to their job well - which is why so many employers look for people who have one. The qualification is well respected within the industry.
