We've designed these advanced, Level 3 technical qualifications in collaboration with employers and professional bodies. They're aimed at learners aged over 16 wanting to progress into a specific sector through apprenticeships, further study or employment.
Our Tech-level qualifications are included in the Department for Education (DfE)'s performance tables for technical and vocational qualifications aimed at students aged 16 to 19. They also attract UCAS tariff points .
Transferable skills have been contextualised explicitly within each qualification and are a mandatory part of the qualification outcome.

AQA’s approach of embedding ‘soft skills’ within the standards means that learners will be better equipped for higher education, Apprenticeships or the workplace
