Am I Ready?

There are no prior skills, knowledge or understanding requirements for these qualifications. However, learners will benefit from having functional skills, at least at one level below that of the qualification (e.g. at least Entry 3 for the Level 1 qualifications and Entry Level 2/3. for the entry level qualifications).

Course Details

The level 1 qualifications have been designed to enable recognition of sector specific vocational learning and more generic employability skills. Vocational areas such as hospitality and catering, sport and leisure, retail and land-based areas will be included in the units of study alongside employability skills. These units also link in with the Preparing for Adulthood outcomes and give students a taste of different vocational subjects. Emphasis is placed on students acquiring key skills to progress in their academic journey and/or to understand more about being independent. Students will learn how to plan for the future, set goals for themselves and understand how these can be achieved. Students will also apply knowledge gained during the year when taking part in their bespoke work experience programme. The entry level qualification allows students to develop the skills most relevant to them, as they prepare for or make the most of adult life. They are able to combine employability, personal and social and learning skills, as appropriate, to create a highly personalised package to meet their individual needs, whether their primary focus is on progression to employment, independent living, further learning or a combination of these. Units studied include healthy eating, managing money, being a householder, cooking, planning a trip and employability skills, to name a few.
