  • Why choose this qualification?

    The Level 2 Public Services qualifications are specifically targeted at level 2 learners who require stretch and challenge and they support progression to further education and study at a higher level or to further training.  They also support the consolidation of key skills in literacy and numeracy and the development of independent learning in particular through the option of undertaking a project in the specific sector.

    Learners will develop sector specific knowledge, understanding and skills together with underpinning transferable skills that support progression to a range of level 3 qualifications within the sector or related areas.

    Learners planning to progress to level 3 should take these qualifications rather than the Skills for Suite as the addition of grading to each unit supports stretch and challenge.
