Applied General qualifications

Our Applied General qualifications build on the strengths of our outgoing specifications. These Level 3 vocational courses offer a practical introduction and support progression to further study or employment. These specifications meet the criteria for inclusion on 2018 performance tables.

Developed in collaboration with teachers, learned societies and higher education institutions, these qualifications will help learners to develop the fundamental knowledge and practical skills that are valued in universities and the world of work.

A variety of assessment types will allow learners to apply their knowledge in a practical way, and this more integrated approach to learning will support a more relevant qualification for learners.
