The Communication qualification encourages learners to develop their skills in:

  • speaking
  • listening
  • reading
  • writing


It recognises their ability to select and apply communication skills in ways that are appropriate to their context. The qualification can also be used to help learners make connections with less-familiar contexts and develop their ability to progress to higher levels of skill.  Communication is essential, but so too are the skills of application, such as making decisions about the relevance and quality of information and taking account of purpose and audience.
