Reforming our level 3 qualifications

We are currently reforming our applied qualifications in Criminology, Food Science and Nutrition, and Medical Science to ensure that they remain up-to-date and reflect current good practice in qualification and assessment design.


Aimed at post-16 learners in full-time education, our applied qualifications are designed to develop fundamental knowledge and practical skills through applied learning i.e. through purposeful contexts linked to a sector or subject area.
