They all pass as a basic electrical qualification but not as an electricians qualification.

Why do you ask?

E.g. I have an HNC in Electrical Engineering a degree in physics but to trade as an electrician I needed to obtain C&G 2381 and 2391 and of course to get registered for Part P
well you should be ok with any of those quals - good luck

Depends on the job, if all they ask is a basic electrical qualification.

NVQ3 for a hands on sparky type job yes but without details of what job is we've answered the question.
