This course is for learners of all abilities and provides a more flexible and ‘hands-on’ approach to learning in practical and occupational settings. This qualification has been uniquely structured with this in mind as learners will have the opportunity to learn for work, through work and about work with a real outcome that will deliver skills for life.
Coursework is the major part of the Occupational Studies course: you will be marked on the practical tasks you complete and you should be able to recall knowledge of these tasks.
