Foundation Learning may be for you if you:
- have not got any basic qualifications yet
- find it difficult to learn without extra support
- need more help to decide what you are going to do in the future.
Foundation Learning is a mixture of qualifications to suit you.
- functional skills in English, maths and information and communication technology (ICT)
- skills you need to live more independently, organise yourself and to work with other people
- new subjects as well as carrying on studying some of those you do now.
The new subjects could show you what work is like and help you with your personal and social development and you may have the opportunity to do work experience.
You can do Foundation Learning in Key Stage 4 or after you are 16.
