What is it?
Vocational Tasters offer learners a concrete introduction to a range of employment sectors. Ideal for learners following an alternative progression route, these courses help learners to make progress towards their personal learning and career aims.
Increasing learners’ knowledge of different employment sectors will help them to make informed and long-lasting decisions about their post-16 destinations.
The Uniformed Services Vocational Taster contains modules in: Military – Army, Navy, Air Force; Policing and Public Order; Fire and Rescue Service; Prison Service and Security Work; Health and Safety in Uniformed Service; Careers in Uniformed Services.
Who is it for?
Young people of all abilities, mainly aged between 14 and 19 (as well as adults and younger learners, where appropriate).
Because Vocational Tasters are multi-level, the focus is on completing challenges and skills development according to individual ability, rather than attainment at a specific level.
