Ok lets start to clarify for you.
Basically the NVQ consists of core units, H&S, Principles etc.
plus other units such as installation, testing or motor fault finding and testing depending on which path you are taking. Generally in industry Installation Electricians can work as Maintenance Electricians but not the other way round. If you are thinking you want to be installing circuits at some time then the Installation(buildings and structures) route is the one to go for. Currently the C&G 2357.

Yes, all awarding bodies have to meet the same NOS's (national occupational standards). The way they do it varies slightly.
Obviously an installation electrician may need further training to do maintenance but this is quite often done "on the job" and could be quite site or equipment specific. i.e. maintaining a waste water treatment plant, is different to maintaining food production lines.
good luck
