Highly practical qualifications that give learners the technical skills and knowledge to progress straight into employment, further study or an apprenticeship in their chosen sector.

This programme builds and recognises learners ‘soft’ transferable skills through our e-learning platform Skills Zone.
Skills Zone can be used standalone and also provides learners with access to Project Qualification, Work Experience and Team Challenge.
