Learning For Work 3 Women Working At A Computer (Resized)

Our employability and occupational studies qualifications will give your customers the transferable, essential skills they’ll need to get into work and succeed in the workplace. 

Our range of employability qualifications help individuals develop essential skills, including English, maths, digital skills, interview technique, job searching, business skills, and money management.

The portfolio is designed to help individuals develop the cross-cutting essential skills they’ll need to thrive in the workplace, such as problem-solving, creativity, teamwork and resilience.

Our qualifications are eligible for a variety of funding streams, such as the Adult Education Budget (AEB) and Lifetime Skills Guarantee. They’ve been designed to address regional skills plans, fill key skills gaps and facilitate training at any point in an individual’s life, helping to make education accessible for all and remove barriers for adults looking to progress in education, employment and life.
