Draft specification available for WorkSkills

If you've signed up for training events or further updates, you will have received a copy of the draft specification to aid planning. These are not yet available in the WorkSkills area of the website, but we're expecting the pre-publication version of the specification to be on the website shortly.

If you haven't yet received a copy of the draft specification but you need this to support your planning, please register your details and we'll ensure that these materials are sent to you. Registering will also ensure that you're the first to receive information about the development, and materials that become available.

We're working on a Unit Level signposting document, designed to show the differences between the old and new specifications, that will be available shortly.  We're also going to be working on a selection of assignment briefs for some of the most popular units.
