The suite of qualifications provide opportunities for learners to develop skills in vocational areas along with literacy, numeracy, ICT and employability, enabling learners to test out their abilities and personal preferences before selecting a chosen career or technical employment route. They 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.

These qualifications have been designed to support learners to build on their knowledge and skills to progress onto higher level qualifications, supporting young people and adults to secure skilled employment to meet the needs of the economy.
