Assessment Methods

  • Portfolio of Evidence

  • Why choose this qualification?

    These qualifications have been developed to enable learners who are vocationally undecided to have their achievements recognised across a number of different vocational sectors.

    These qualifications are linked to the Gateway Qualifications Suite of Skillsqualifications, available in the vocational sectors at Entry 3, Level 1 and Level 2 which are progression routes from the Vocational Studies suite.

    The employability skills units are common across the suite and also appear within Gateway Qualifications qualifications in Employability Skills. Some of the employability skills units also make up the Gateway Qualifications Personal, Learning and Thinking Skills qualifications and the Entry 3 employability skills units also feature in the Entry 3 Preparation for Employment qualifications.

    Rules of Combination

    Learners must complete 13 credits with at least 7 credits achieved at Level 1. 9 credits must come from Group A (Sector Specific Skills) and a maximum of 4 may come from Group B (Employability Skills). Learners may take units from up to four sectors in Group A. Learners cannot include more than one unit with the same or similar title. For full details see list of barred units.
