5 A simple architecture Challenge Size Level 1 – 12 credits13 – 36 credits Above 36 credits

6 The Foundation Learning Tier is… a programme of work to develop a more focussed and strategic approach to entry level and level 1 for learners aged 14 and over within the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) in order to raise participation, achievement and progression amongst learners at these levels. Within the Foundation Learning Tier, Progression Pathways will be the main organising structures. They are personalised programmes of learning specifically designed to promote progression as well as help learners achieve qualifications from entry level and level 1 of the QCF. 03

7 Priority Progression Pathways Progression Pathways identified for developmental delivery in 2008/09 offer progression to: a first full level 2 skilled work (apprenticeships) independent living or supported employment a Foundation (level 1) Diploma or GCSEs. 06

Will also be supported by a wrap-around of information, advice and guidance, effective initial assessment, comprehensive ongoing review, and provider collaboration. 07

11 23 providers across London 20 providers are trialling individual progression pathways 3 providers trialling two pathways FLT Developmental Delivery 2008/09

12 Progression to Skilled Work including Apprenticeships – 13 providers Progression to Full Level 2 – 6 providers Independent Living/Supported Employment – 7 providers FLT Developmental Delivery 2008/09
