Level 1 and Level 2 Certificate in Preparation for Working Life: Short Course (4800)
Following feedback on our previous announcement we’ve decided to accept entries for summer 2019 for students being entered for the first time. This is on the understanding that these students will not have a resit opportunity beyond summer 2019.
Therefore, summer 2019 will be the final opportunity to enter for 4800C/W (coursework and one exam) and 4801 (two exams only).
Please note, students resitting 4800 can carry their coursework marks forward.
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).
