Qualification Levels Explained

The different qualifications you can learn – A Levels, Apprenticeships, GCSEs and so on – are grouped together in levels. It makes it easier for you (and easier for employers, colleges and universities) to know how difficult a qualification is and how it compares to others.

For example

A Levels and Advanced Apprenticeships can take different amounts of time to complete and you might learn in different ways, but they’re similar in terms of difficulty and value to employers/colleges and units: they’re both Level Three qualifications.

You can find out more about the different levels at National Careers Service or by calling 0800 100 900 (get the bill payer’s permission first).
