BTEC WorkSkills Level 1 (2017)

The BTEC Workskills qualifications are a well recognised suite of qualifications that are used to develop the employability skills of diverse groups of learners. Most commonly these qualifications are used for adult learners who are unemployed, with young people as part of Traineeships or as an enhancement programme to another main aim of study. 

The purpose of Level 1 Workskills is to progress learners into the workplace, either short term or in the future. Level 1 is the most frequently undertaken for unemployed adult learners and in traineeship programmes.

Units offered include applying for jobs, achieving success at interview, career progression, building working relationships with colleagues, managing own money, personal behaviour for success and working in a team. In larger qualifications an optional group allows learners to select sector-based units and include Personal and Social Development.
