These qualifications allow you to focus on the particular literacy, numeracy and/or ICT skills that you want or need to improve. They allow you to build up your confidence in these areas and show that you can use these skills in real life or work situations.
You don't have to complete all of the units - just the ones that are relevant to you.
Strong communication, number and ICT skills are vital in almost any career.
The units are designed to be flexibly, and it's possible for learners to work towards a mixture of communication, number and ICT units, or alternatively focus on just one area. All units are assessed by portfolio, with evidence drawn from any purposeful activity relevant to the learner.
These qualifications support learner progression towards the Essential Skills Wales qualifications, although do not contribute directly towards, or act as a 'proxy' for Essential Skills qualification achievement.
