Gateway Qualifications’ Personal and Social Development qualifications, including our British Values, Mental Wellbeing and Keeping Safe and Healthy qualifications, support a broad and balanced curriculum for learners of all ages and abilities by enabling the development of a coherent learning programme of personal, social, health and economic wellbeing.
Our suite of Entry Level qualifications has been specifically designed with study programmes in mind, including the new supported internships.
The qualifications offer a structure and a means of recognising achievements that arise from a personalised learning programme which supports individual progression to a positive post-learning outcome.
This portfolio of qualifications prepares learners who need support at various levels to progress to the next stage, primarily addressing those with learning difficulties and/or disabilities but also providing for those needing additional study skills or an introduction to a subject area.
A flexible approach so that every learner can thrive
Preparatory qualifications build confidence in learners and are often the vital first step on a career path. Our approach is to offer a flexible suite of qualifications designed to produce a curriculum led by learners’ needs and interests.
Because education is not just about destinations, it’s about the journey
Education is a lifelong commitment for our providers and this philosophy is embodied in our approach to preparatory qualifications, which aim to start the journey for learners so that it is interesting, enjoyable and purposeful.
Enabling best practice through varying sizes, flexible rules and a
variety of optional units
By listening to feedback from providers and enabling learners’ needs to influence curriculum, we have devised qualifications in a range of sizes with units offering flexibility and precision in targeting qualifications to a specific course or job.
Enabling best practice in providers at the same time empowers learners – by offering a wide range of options on units of study, Gateway Qualifications delivers on this promise.
