Nothing stimulates the debate between the worlds of education and work so much as the subject of employability skills.

Recognising the importance of assets such as team working, communication skills and personal development, Gateway Qualifications seeks to embed these skills within vocational qualifications where possible, as well as providing these stand alone qualifications.

Newly revised for 2019/20 following consultations with providers, our Employability Skills qualifications facilitate the embedding of units to make it easier to deliver holistic programmes of learning in different contexts. They also feature newly added units that reflect employer requirements and include a suite of awards in Digital Skills for Work.
