Entry Pathways

Our suite of Entry Pathway qualifications cover a range of subjects and enable centres to support personalised learning programmes for their learners through:

  • Combining units to create programmes of study suited to individual learners’ needs
  • Eliciting the required assessment evidence from integrated programmes of work at appropriate points during the course;
  • Recognising completion of each unit as well as the qualification as a whole

Entry Pathway qualifications are available as 'Awards', 'Certificates' and 'Diplomas' and are suitable for anyone interested in gaining a recognised qualification. Key documents relating to the delivery and assessment of our Entry Pathway qualifications can be found in the related documents section of this page.

Performance Points - England

Centres in England should note that all Entry Level qualifications and those at Level 1 which have no direct links to a Level 2 qualification are not included in school performance tables.

Performance Points – Wales

In Wales, the Welsh Government has confirmed that Entry level qualifications will not count towards the Level 1 threshold (Welsh Baccalaureate (Foundation) from 2018) or the Level 2 threshold measures (Welsh Baccalaureate (National) from 2018. They can still contribute towards the Capped Points Score measures. Details of the points allocated to specific Entry Pathway qualifications can be found on the Qualification in Wales database www.qiw.wales
