Insight into Industry pathways enable learners who are undecided on what vocational route they would like to take, to have their achievements recognised across different industries.

Insight into industry will support movement between different sectors and increase engagement where learners start in one area and then decide to switch to another.

Vocational Studies will allow learners to work towards a Certificate at levels Entry 3 through to Level 2, which incorporate a range of units to help develop skills within employability, personal and life skills and maths and English, whilst also developing industry knowledge.

This pathway will support movement between different sectors and increase overall social, practical and visual awareness, further exploring and discovering the skills needed to move into adulthood.

Learners will have the opportunity to work towards a qualification in Personal Progress and/or Skills for active learners.

Qualifications will help to develop cognitive development, physical awareness, fine motor and communication skills, as well as allowing earners to become part of the community, promote independence and develop travel awareness.
