Course overview

This is a year’s course which has been devised for learners who are working at entry level who have particular learning difficulty and or disability. The course could be a stepping stone into the main stream vocational course across college. The qualification provides a foundation for lifelong learning focussing on transferable social, life and work skills which are essential for living and working in the community. The qualification is designed to develop some of the basic skills needed to gain employment. The qualification can build on previous achievement of an award but also allow for a more in depth look at some of the skill areas and ensure, through the range of units available, that a breadth of skill areas is covered.
