We were delighted to announce in May that a number of EAL qualifications now carry UCAS tariff points which meet Department for Education requirements and will count towards league tables and university entry.
This is a major milestone which gives many of our awards parity and context alongside academic achievement and allows our FE customers a much greater choice. EAL awards are much more flexible than those of other awarding bodies. They provide a blended more vocational offer, that suits a wide range of learners, combining theory with practical application and a variety of assessment methods from online examinations to practical projects, which can be tailored to fit the needs of the training organisation and its learners. Our qualifications have choice and flexibility to be delivered as standalone qualifications or alongside qualifications such as A-Levels and are suitable for all ages – from Key Stage 5 (16-18) to full-time adult learners.
