SFA approve 19+ funding for BTEC Level 1 qualifications in Safe Road Skills and Attitudes

We're pleased that our appeal to the SFA to continue funding the following 2qualifications for 19+ learners in 2015/16 was successful:

  • 500/9801/9 - Pearson BTEC Level 1 Award in Safe Road Skills and Attitudes (QCF)
  • 500/9802/0 - Pearson BTEC Level 1 Certificate in Safe Road Skills and Attitudes (QCF)

These qualifications were developed in partnership with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency. The aim of the qualifications is to make a positive contribution to road safety by educating road users and changing attitudes, building a sense of personal responsibility and promoting a mature attitude to risk and safety issues. The qualifications can be used alongside licence acquisition, with the Certificate size allowing learners to sit a shorter version of the Theory Test for Drivers. The shorter version of the test is called the Abridged Theory Test.
