Level 1/2 Award qualifications

This suite of practical, vocational qualifications is available to 14-16 year olds to take alongside GCSEs.

Although they won’t be included in performance tables for 2019, we’re offering these Level 1/2 Awards to schools and colleges as we believe these are valuable qualifications for practical learners.

They equip learners with the practical, transferable skills and core knowledge they need to progress to further general or vocational study, including Level 3 qualifications, employment or apprenticeships. We’ve worked with teachers, employers and industry to help give young learners the best possible introduction to their chosen vocational area(s).
