VRQ stands for Vocationally Related Qualification - VRQs have fewer units and are ideal for those who want to specialise in a particular area for example; nails, lashes, skincare etc.

NVQ stands for National Vocational Qualification - NVQs have multiple units and are suitable for those looking to become an all round therapist. 

Both NVQ/VRQ are recognized nationally and internationally.
