A great LEAP forward!

Posted on 11-06-14

LASER is excited to announce the Ofqual approval of the Learning, Employability and Progression Qualifications suite (LEAP).  LEAP is a great replacement for Step-UP.  It is an exciting new product which has been developed in response to customer and learner feedback.  A big thank you to everyone who has contributed to and supported this development.
 
The qualifications offer a wide and flexible choice of personal development and vocational taster units which give you the autonomy and freedom to select the units and combinations of units that suit your learners’ particular needs. The qualifications are specifically intended for those who require a truly individualised curriculum.
 
There are seven sizes of qualification at each level (Entry 3 and Level 1). The qualifications are nested, so that units in a smaller qualification can be counted towards larger qualifications within the same suite. All units appear in all qualifications in the suite. The rules of combination are simple with no core units, allowing you to build a course to fulfil the learner’s needs, promote engagement and retention and boost learner confidence.
 
To make the qualification easy to use the units are grouped informally into curriculum areas.

  • Personal and Social Development skills such as confidence-building, teamwork, healthy living, citizenship, rights and responsibilities
  • Essential Skills – Literacy, numeracy and IT skills – which can be embedded into vocational units
  • Success in Learning including preparing to learn, progressing in learning and learning activities
  • Employability – including work preparation and planning, interview preparation, enterprise activities, undertaking work experience, and job seeking skills

 
Vocational tasters include the following subject areas:

  • Animal Care
  • Business and Administration
  • Child, Health and Social Care
  • Construction Trades
  • Creative Arts
  • Cycle and Car Care
  • Hair and Beauty
  • Horticulture and Floristry
  • Hospitality and Catering
  • Land-Based Industries
  • Motor Vehicles and Engineering
  • Performing Arts
  • Retail, Warehousing and Manufacturing
