Qualification Update – Skills for Further Learning and Employment

Open Awards’ popular Skills for Further Learning and Employment (SFLE) qualifications suite has been with us since 2014 and over the last six months, it underwent a long overdue redevelopment. Throughout this post, we’ll be taking a closer look at the key changes and what you can expect following our Validity Panel meeting in December 2021, when the suite was extended until 31/08/2027.

This is the first major review of SFLE and our work has included:

  • Developing new Endorsed Pathways at all levels.
  • Aligning Level 1 and Level 2 units with other national routes such as Traineeships where appropriate.

We can now…

  • Provide model curriculum examples for both endorsed and non-endorsed Pathways at each size and level within the suite.
  • Demonstrate how to link to environmental initiatives such as the John Muir Award (Conservation) to the unit content.
  • Demonstrate how to integrate numeracy and literacy assessment into vocational unit assessment.
  • Provide additional tools to help plan, deliver and assess a course based on the qualifications in the unit lists.

A visual summary of the revised groups, including main and sub-groups at each level is provided here.

A full list of unit groups can be found in the updated Qualification Guides for each Level which will be available to download from our website from March 2022. We hope that you found this information helpful and please do not hesitate to get in touch with us on 0151 494 2072 or by email enquiries@openawards.org.uk if you have any queries.
