The Skills Passport

The Skills Passport

The Skills Passport will be flexible and adaptable to local contexts, accrediting skills development systems and processes that may already be highly developed in some schools and academies, and encompassing a wide range of existing qualifications and awards.

The pupil transcript will report the basic and wider skills students have acquired.  There are diverse and well developed methods for framing personal skill and competency development, such as:

  • ALAN tests (literacy and numeracy)
  • Other functional or key skill tests and qualifications
  • ASDAN skills-centred qualifications (AoPE, CoPE, CVQ, Employability, etc.)

as well as other Awarding Organisations and programmes

  • RSA “Opening Minds” awards
  • PLTS passport
  • Building Learning Power
  • QCF competence based skills qualifications from Prince’s Trust, Edexcel and NCFE
