Open College Network West Midlands Centres: Lifetime learning for all

Developing Independent Living Skills

  • Open College Network West Midlands Entry Level Award in Developing Independent Living Skills (Entry 3) - 603/6329/0

This qualification addresses the needs of learners working at Entry Level 2/3 or with English as an Additional Language.

It is designed especially for those who are new to living independently and have additional support needs such as Asylum Seekers, Refugees, people who have been homeless and young people leaving Care. Centres can choose to deliver it via the pathway options mentioned or as a generic qualification.

The qualification was originally created to meet the needs of Unaccompanied Asylum Seeker Children living in supported housing and as such may be useful to the Social Housing or Care Sectors. The mandatory units cover Making a Home, Self-Care, Accessing Medical Care and working towards Positive Mental Health which are core skills for people who are living independently for the first time.

The qualification offers transferable social and life skills, facilitates improved life chances and enables learners to take advantage of the appropriate and relevant education required for living and work within the community.

In order to deliver a qualification, centres must meet the requirements to deliver the qualification (which can be found in the Qualification Guide) and complete the Qualification Approval Form (QAF).
