Entry Level


Entry Level

Entry Level is the lowest level in the National Qualifications Framework in the United Kingdom. Qualifications at this level recognise basic knowledge and skills and the ability to apply learning in everyday situations under direct guidance or supervision. Learning at this level involves building basic knowledge and skills and is not usually geared towards specific occupations.

Entry Levels can be taken at three levels [cite web|url=http://www.edexcel.org.uk/quals/elc/|title=Edexcel : Qualifications : Entry Level Certificate|publisher=Edexcel|accessdate=2008-05-29] , and are available on a broad range of subjects. They are targeted at a range of learners, including adult learners, candidates on taster sessions, underachievers and ones with learning difficulties. [cite web|url=http://www.ocr.org.uk/qualifications/entrylevel/|title=OCR > Qualifications > Entry Level|publisher=OCR|accessdate=2008-05-29] Foundation Diplomas and BTEC Level 1 Certificates are examples of Entry Level qualifications.

The level after Entry Level in the National Qualifications Framework is Level 1, which includes GCSE grades D-G and Level 1 DiDA.
