Ten units must be achieved, of which four must be taken from the Core Skills and six from Sector Skills.
Assessments will demonstrate your skills and will involve keeping a portfolio of assignments.
All units in this specification are internally assessed through course work, practical activities and role plays.
Choose to follow with a Level 2 course in a subject such as Business or Administration, or you could go into a junior role in industry.
