  • Why choose this qualification?

    Qualifications in Progression are a flexible and responsive range of general and pre-vocational qualifications devised with the aim to progress learners into further learning and/or employment. They also contain many of the units from the popular Skills Towards Enabling Progression (Step-Up) qualifications so can be used in their place.

    The qualification consist of a range of core units to provide opportunities for learners to develop skills in the areas such as literacy, numeracy, ICT, employability, learning to learn and personal development; plus a range of taster units in different sector specific areas providing opportunities for learners to test out their abilities and personal preferences before selecting a chosen career or employment route.

    These qualifications will be of particular benefit to those learners who:
    want to progress into other further or higher education courses, or into new work area
    are returning, or planning to return, to work and who are seeking to update and/or add to their employment skills
    would benefit from alternative approaches to curriculum and learning
    want to test out a vocational area to inform their career/employment choices
    for whatever reason, have not previously achieved in education
    need to develop their literacy and/or numeracy skills.

    The qualifications allow learners to achieve the size and level of qualification most suitable for their needs and relevant to their stage of learning, providing an opportunity to work towards qualifications in small steps. The Qualifications in Progression are also approved to run with pre-16 learners. They contain many of the units from the popular Skills Towards Enabling Progression (Step-Up) qualifications so can be used in their place.
