About Technical Awards
Technical Awards are broad, high-quality Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications that equip students with applied knowledge and associated practical skills, not usually acquired through general education. They focus on the applied study of an industry sector or occupational area, or the acquisition of practical and technical skills.
Technical Awards will fulfil entry requirements for both academic and vocational study post-16, alongside GCSEs.
