LASER’s ‘Progression’ qualifications are offered at Entry 3, Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 (‘spiky profiles’ can be accommodated) and come in a variety of sizes. Designed to meet a range of needs, they develop personal skills, employability skills and literacy, numeracy and IT skills and can be used to accredit work experience in a choice of vocational areas. These qualifications are ‘nested’ qualifications (i.e. credits achieved for an Award can contribute towards achievement of a Certificate etc. – where there is an overlap between the qualifications at unit level). They are available to learners from pre-16 through to adults. The recommended Total Qualification Time is between 30 and 450 hours depending on the qualification. Learners are assessed in terms of whether they have met the assessment criteria specified in the units of assessment, and are required to collate a portfolio of evidence.
