Gain an NVQ volunteering with CHSW

Did you know you can volunteer in a CHSW charity shop and gain a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) at the same time?

What is an NVQ in Retail?

An NVQ is a nationally recognised qualification that demonstrates your retail skills.

If you are 19+ and interested in a career in retail then this may be an opportunity for you to gain an NVQ in Retail or Customer Service whilst volunteering with us. 

You don't need any previous experience however you will need to meet the entry criteria.

How to apply for an NVQ

We work closely with recognised NVQ provider Derby College to properly support and assess NVQs in our shops.
