Level 2
Minimum entry age
This qualification is available for learners aged pre-16 and above and is suitable for use within a Study Programme.

This qualification is designed for learners who want to go on to further learning at Level 3 or into a relevant Travel and Tourism role. It is particularly relevant for those aged 16-18 undertaking a large programme of full-time study, but is also relevant to adult learners who may be changing career or entering a new industry.

What is a nested qualification?

This qualification is nested. Qualifications within a nested suite allow learners to be topped up to a qualification that is the same level and subject within the Certificate and Diploma structure. This can be done by self-service through the Portal. Qualification nests and top-up pricing can be found in our fees list.

Internal assessments will go ahead in 2021/22, therefore moving away from results being based on Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) used in 2020 to 2021, where this has been permitted. Students need to prepare a portfolio of evidence. We encourage centres to review our guidance on the types of evidence, and evidence capture, that we permit including e.g. the use of video, photos and other digital means of demonstrating knowledge and skills.

For further information please see the 2021/22 adaptation addendum document below.
