This introductory course will help you to develop personal knowledge and skills that will help you in day to day life and in working life. You'll develop your personal knowledge and skills which will help you to build confidence and independence.
The course is designed as a flexible framework which can be taken as a stand alone qualification or as units alongside other qualifications in the foundation learning progression pathways.
What will I learn?
Units will cover different life skills, including:
- Managing your money
- Dealing with challenges
- Personal and social relationships
You will also develop your maths and English skills and take part in individual and group tutorials to strengthen employability skills as part of a full study programme.
If you're over 16 and work ready, we can help you to find a work experience placement to help you further build your skills and knowledge.
How will I be assessed?
Your progress will be assessed in a range of ways including written assignments or tasks such as designing a leaflet or booklet, charts or diagrams or setting up an information board.
What can I do after the course?
Direct progression is built into this programme as units are shared with some of the other qualifications we offer. This means credits and learning can be transferred across the qualifications so learners do not have to retake units already completed.
