British Values

The Gateway Qualifications Level 1 Award in British Values is a short introduction for learners of all abilities to develop an understanding of British Values. The qualification is easy to deliver and is assessed via an online, on-demand multiple choice test which is externally set and marked to reduce the burden on centres.

Learners come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, and many British-born learners to do not fully understand what is meant by British Values. This qualification breaks down complex concepts, using straightforward language and accessible (often scenario-based) questions to assess learners' understanding. There are no entry requirements for this qualification.

An understanding of British Values can help learners' self-development, aid their employability, contribute positively to safeguarding and help you build a cohesive community. The further purpose of the qualification is to promote personal growth and engagement in learning.

For centres, this qualification is easy-to-deliver and demonstrates to Ofsted that all students have a good grounding and firm understanding of the fundamental British Values:

  • Democracy
  • Rule of Law
  • Liberty
  • Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith

Alongside the concepts of

  • Extremism 
  • Radicalisation 

The assessment burden for this qualification has also been kept to a minimum by using an externally set and marked, online, multiple choice assessment. The assessment is available on-demand, so students can be entered whenever they are ready.
