The key facts about these qualifications are that all the units are at Level 2, and are graded pass, merit or distinction. The overall qualification is also graded pass, merit, distinction. This will provide stretch and challenge for those wishing to progress to Level 3 in the sector or a related area.

These graded qualification have been developed in a way that allows them to be co-teachable with our other Level 2 qualifications in the sector. And, like their ungraded counterparts, they are assessed through a portfolio of evidence. 

Each qualification contains a number of optional sector specific units and four generic units – Communication Skills for the Workplace, Numeracy Skills for the Workplace ICT Skills for the Workplace, Improving own Employability Skills. Improving own Employability Skills is particularly suitable for those undertaking a period of work placement. Learners may also choose to carry out a project on a theme that relates to the sector.
