Preparing for Further Learning or Employment (Sector Pathways)

Entry Level 3 qualifications with pathways mapped to sector skills requirements.

The global pandemic and Brexit have changed the UK job landscape. Job vacancies are at an all-time high with recent figures from the Office for National Statistics estimating that there were over one million job vacancies in the UK in the three months to September 2021.

Hospitality, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Transport and Construction are amongst the sectors worst affected by staff shortages and it’s vital that we equip people with the skills needed to fill these vacancies.

Sector Pathways

To help learners develop the skills they need to work in these sectors we have developed pathways for our Entry Level 3 Preparing for Further Learning or Employment qualifications. 

All the units in these pathways have been pre-selected and mapped to the practical skills and knowledge required for each sector. 

The qualifications are suitable for upskilling and reskilling learners and offer progression routes onto level one and two qualifications. 

Launching 1st May 2022

Launching July 2022
