In light of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the labour market, vocational and progression qualifications have become even more essential in supporting entry and re-entry to employment.

Our range of flexible multi-pathway qualifications have been designed to equip learners with key learning and employability skills, alongside knowledge from a wide array of vocational areas. They are consistent with the principles for study programmes for 16-19 year olds. In addition, they are relevant - particularly in the case of the smaller qualifications - for adults, including those who are unemployed.
