Assessment Methods

  • Portfolio of Evidence

  • Why choose this qualification?

    These Enterprise qualifications, available at Entry 1, Entry 2 and Entry 3, cover key knowledge and skills required to run or participate in enterprise activity.  They are suitable for learners, including those with learning difficulties and/or disabilities or with Special Educational Needs or Disability (SEND), who will benefit from a course that develops skills, attitudes and behaviours valuable in an employment context, through taking part in enterprise activity.

    These qualifications have been developed as 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 suite also includes qualifications with the following titles:

    • Skills for Active Learners
    • Making Support Work
    • Personal and Social Skills
    • Preparation for Employment
    • Enterprise
    • Skills for Independent Living.

    All the qualifications in the Entry level suite 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.  Learning outcomes and assessment criteria are written in such a way that centres have the freedom to determine their own approach to teaching and learning, as well as the most appropriate form of assessment and type of evidence.  In this way, the qualifications can be used to underpin person-centred programmes.

    Enterprise – 2019

    This qualification was developed in 2019 to update our Entry level suite of qualifications. It will replace the older LEGACY: Gateway Qualifications Entry Level Certificate In Enterprise (Entry 3) qualification. The two versions of the qualification will run in parallel until 31st July 2020.

    If you are running Enterprise qualifications please double check that you are registering and claiming on the correct version. If you have any queries about which version you are approved for, please contact us.

    For information about the older version of the qualification, please visit LEGACY: Gateway Qualifications Entry Level Certificate In Enterprise (Entry 3).
