Why study Workskills?

Workskills is a new BTEC qualification from EDEXCEL that’s been developed after extensive research and consultation with employers, training providers, schools, and colleges. The aim of Workskills is to deliver the skills that will help people gain and retain a job. The units build on the skills already taught in schools and colleges and offer the opportunity to recognise these skills with a formal BTEC qualification.
