  • Why choose this qualification?

    The suite of Gateway Qualifications Vocational Studies qualifications has been developed to enable learners who have yet to decide which vocational sector to specialise in. It enables them to have their achievements recognised in at least two sectors from the list below.

    • Business and Administration
    • Construction
    • Engineering
    • Health, Social Care and Childcare
    • Hospitality & Catering
    • Information and Technology
    • Performing Arts, Music and Music Technology
    • Public Services
    • Retail
    • Applied Science
    • Sport & Active Leisure
    • Travel & Tourism

    The qualifications have been designed to enable recognition of sector specific vocational learning and more generic employability skills. The employability skills units are common across the suite and also appear within qualifications offered by Gateway Qualifications in Employability Skills.

    What is the purpose of this qualification?

    This qualification is for learners, young people and adults, who would benefit from exploring different possible career options, while building up a set of employability skills useful across sectors, usually prior to progressing to more specialised vocational learning in a specific sector at a higher level. It is likely to be of particular relevance to:

    • Learners on study programmes who do not know which vocational area to specialise in
    young people leaving school or returning to education following a period of being NEET, without clear career aspirations or unable to make up their minds between several different options and who are in need of a comprehensive programme to prepare them for learning at the next level
    • adults who have been long-term unemployed who need to identify sectors and job roles within them where they have the potential to contribute, and who require an extensive learning programme before they will be ready to progress to sector specific vocational learning.


    What skills, knowledge, or understanding does this qualification develop?

    The qualification includes units covering introductory knowledge and skills from a range of different sectors:

    - Business and Administration
    - Engineering
