Qualification Grading Type
Why choose this qualification?
These qualifications are part of a coherent suite of qualifications that Gateway Qualifications has developed in Science, Technology and Engineering.
The purpose of these qualifications is to enable learners to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills that will enable them to progress to further learning or training qualifications in Engineering at a higher level. They also provide learners with the opportunity to develop wider personal and employability skills with optional units in personal, learning and thinking skills and employability.
The qualifications have been developed with the support of a number of further education colleges, training providers and adult and community learning providers. They have been designed to be consistent with the principles for study programmes for 16-19 year olds but are also relevant, particularly in the case of the smaller qualifications, for adults including the unemployed. These qualifications are also suitable for pre 16 learners.
