These new graded qualifications provide a broad introduction to a sector and give learners the opportunity to demonstrate increased skill levels.
For learners who do not want to specialise in one particular sector, we offer these Vocational Studies qualifications which gives learners the opportunity to study units from across the sectors. Learners will develop the necessary transferable and sector skills to progress more quickly. The qualifications prepare learners for progression to Level 2 BTECs or other study programmes. They provide for progression by either meeting entry requirements in their own right or by being accepted alongside other qualifications at the same level and adding value to them, typically alongside maths and English studies
