ABOUT THE COURSE

What is the purpose of these BTEC Entry Pre-vocational Study qualifications?

The Pearson BTEC Entry Level 1 in Pre-vocational Study qualifications are designed around practical skills and tasks that place an emphasis on learners demonstrating what they can do rather than what they know in theory.

The qualifications give learners the opportunity to acquire and develop generic and transferable skills in order to complete tasks and demonstrate a level of achievement at Entry Level 1, which enables them to work towards independent living skills, progress to supported employment or progress to further learning at Entry Level 2.

 

Who are these BTEC Entry Pre-vocational Study qualifications for?

These BTEC Pre-vocational qualifications are available to 16-18yrs & EHCP learners at this level who want to continue their education and develop their skills for progression to further learning and, ultimately, to employment.

 

What do these BTEC Pre-vocational Study qualifications cover?

The content of these qualifications has been developed in consultation with further education colleges and other providers to ensure that they support progression to further learning and training.

The optional units offer a broad introduction to skills that should be contextualised and which will focus on specific relevant contexts that match the personalised learner needs, interests, aspirations, and future progression plans.

 

What could these BTEC Pre-vocational Study qualifications lead to?

These BTEC qualifications prepare learners for further learning at a higher level, working towards independent living, working with others and progression into supported employment. The development of skills and the generic approach of the Pre-vocational Study qualifications means that learners may choose a study programme that focuses on a particular vocational area of interest, enter a supported employment programme or may exit learning at this stage equipped with the skills to be able to live independently.

 

How do these BTEC Pre-vocational Study qualifications enable learners? to progress?

The mode of delivery and assessment in the units is designed to build confidence in learning, working with others and delivering vocationally-related activities. Learners will be given contexts and scenarios to help them develop skills and acquire knowledge through application.

Learners will develop pre-employability skills to allow them to progress to further learning and training, and, ultimately, to become successful in their future career choices.
