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.

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

It is an inter-disciplinary course which covers aspects of careers, health, personal safety, employment opportunities, applying for jobs and personal finance. Preparation for Working Life is a practical course in which students learn skills such as how and where to find employment opportunities, how to apply for jobs and courses, and how to prepare for an interview.

Elements of the course map on to programmes of study at Key Stage 4 for Citizenship and PSHE, such as personal and economic well-being and financial capability.

We also offer a full course in this subject (Level 1/Level 2 Certificate in Preparation for Working Life – 4801).
