Level 1/2 Certificate in Preparation for Working Life: Full Course (4801)

We have carefully considered the future of all our qualifications and have decided not to continue with our Level 1/2 Certificates in Preparation for Working Life (4800/4801).

The last exams for students taking the current qualifications will be in the June 2019 series. There will be no further re-sit opportunities beyond this point.

If you need any support or have any questions, please contact us using the details shown below.


The Preparation for Working Life specification is equivalent, in the size and demand placed on students, to a GCSE short course.

This Preparation for Working Life specification is similar in size and demand to a full course GCSE, and is suitable for all students from grades A*-G. The course assessment is by examination only.

This is an inter-disciplinary course which covers aspects of careers, health, personal safety, employment opportunities, applying for jobs and courses, interview preparation and personal finance. It therefore compliments a broad range of curriculum pathways and can be used to enrich learning for life and work at Key Stages 4 and 5.

The course maps onto the programmes of study at Key Stage 4 for Citizenship and PSHE, personal and economic well-being and financial capability (see Appendix 4 of the specification).
