The Pearson BTEC Level 2 Certificate in Workskills is designed to develop capability that learners need for work either immediately or in the future. This qualification will develop skills such as employability and personal and social skills, and provide an opportunity to explore occupational areas. Learners will also have the opportunity to progress to Level 3 occupational qualifications or an apprenticeship.
A recent survey from the CBI showed that most employers want employees with a positive attitude and wider employability skills to succeed in the workplace. The survey suggested that, ‘these wider employability skills should include: general communication skills, applied numeracy, team working, problem solving and integrity’; this course offers these skills throughout.
The work is completed over the three years which is related to becoming an employee in the workplace. We look at your own skills, team working and presentation skills and the group will plan their own activity that will gain income, encourage team work,communication within the group and externally, problem solving and the use of initiative.We also, as part of the course undertake voluntary, which forms part of the assessment.
The WorkSkills certificate is 100% coursework. The internal coursework can be recorded through a number of means such as PowerPoint presentations, wall displays, observation and written reports. The activity that the group decide on will be documented throughout and feedback on self assessment and self reflection given throughout the course.You will obtain a Pass grade.
No prior knowledge is required.
The units build on the skills taught in school and offer the opportunity to recognise these skills with a formal qualification.
There will be visits connected to the course which will be used as case studies to enhance knowledge, skills and understanding of the units being studied.
