The ABC Level 2 Certificate in Essential Skills for Further Study in Health Science Professions is aimed primarily at learners who wish to pursue a career in one of the health science professions which require academic study at university, but who are not yet ready to study at Level 3.
This qualification is designed for learners who are returning to academic study after a period of time outside of formal education, that wish to progress to Level 3. The qualification is small enough that up to two GCSEs can be studied alongside, where learners are hoping to eventually progress to a HE course that requires GCSEs for example Nursing.
Typical progression routes after this qualification include:
• Access to HE Diploma, then University
• A-Level study
• Access to HE Diploma, then a Higher Apprenticeship
• Scottish Highers.
