    Which sector does this qualification support?

    This qualification is not intended to lead directly to employment, although for the small numbers who may progress into a (supported) entry-level job role, the skills covered will be of use in any employment context.


    What are the progression options?

    Learners will be able to progress from this qualification to further Entry level learning in a variety of areas, including personal and social development, learning skills and preparation for employment. Their progression will be facilitated by their improved ability to make use of the learning support on offer to them.


    How will this qualification support the learner’s independence?

    This qualification is primarily intended for use by learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities or with Special Educational Needs or Disability (SEND) who would benefit from learning how to optimise the support available to them.
