Certa Awards Skills for Further Learning and Employment qualifications are nationally recognised, which will help learners overcome barriers to work by re-engaging in learning or training. They enable learners to try out subjects in a flexible course that can be tailored to their needs.

Learners who would benefit include those who:

  • are ready re–engage with learning and prepare for work within the same course of study
  • need careful approaches to learning, perhaps because of poor or disrupted experiences at school, or because they are returning to study after some time away
  • may previously have been reluctant learners, who are at risk of dropping out of education or training
  • who need more confidence before entering or re-entering the job market
  • who have been unemployed for a while and who need to develop personal skills as well as some vocational knowledge and skills
  • need to explore future career options and try out some vocational areas.

Please see the General Documents futher down this page, for details on the units available for this qualification.


Certa Awards Skills for Further Learning and Employment qualifications are designed to re-engage people in learning and prepare for employment. They will enable learners to progress to further learning and may help some learners to progress to employment in a range of sectors.

This suite of qualifications are not part of an apprenticeship and do not lead directly to employment. They will, however, support learners wanting to develop personal and vocational skills that are beneficial in a work environment which may increase their chances of gaining employment in the future.
