Qualification Grading Type
Why choose this qualification?
The Gateway Qualifications suite of Dyspraxia qualifications have been developed to enable a wide range of learners to improve their knowledge and understanding of dyspraxia, and in the case of the Level 3 Award in Supporting Learners with Dyspraxia to equip them with the skills to support the learning of individuals with dyspraxia. While it is expected that the Level 3 Awards will be largely taken by people working with individuals with dyspraxia in a professional capacity, the lower level Awards, in particular the Level 1 Award in Dyspraxia Awareness, are also suitable for other types of learner, including parents and carers of children or young people with dyspraxia.
The qualifications provide progression through the suite from Level 1 to Level 3. The Level 3 qualifications may also prepare learners to move on to a Level 5 Diploma in Teaching Learners with Specific Learning Difficulties or to a broader Level 3 qualification in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools or a Level 3 Certificate for Learning Support Practitioners.
The approved age range for these qualifications is 16-18 and 19+ for the three Awards in Dyspraxia Awareness and 18+ for the Level 3 Award in Supporting Learners with Dyslexia.
There are no restrictions to entry. However, learners must be able to work directly with one or more individuals with dyspraxia in order to achieve the Level 3 Award in Supporting Learners with Dyspraxia.
