    This is part of a coherent suite designed to recognise the achievements of learners working at Entry level, as they prepare for employment, independent living, further learning or adult life in general.

    The qualifications are designed to enable maximum flexibility, combining units at different levels and offering a wide range of choice, so that the curriculum can be led by the learners’ needs, accommodating the spiky profiles typical of learners at this level. The units are designed to enable learners to demonstrate their skills in a particular area, without being overly prescriptive about the nature of the evidence required.
