Essential Skills qualifications are designed to help you develop the skills you use in everyday life and work. They can help boost your CV, help you get on to other courses, or give you more confidence in your own abilities.

If you’re aged 16-18 and don’t have the required English or maths grade for your chosen course you’ll either get the change to study for these alongside your main qualification or be offered an alternative option to enable you to achieve these grades.
