Each qualification has core units totalling 60 guided learning hours. These compulsory core units cover the body of content that employers and educators within the sector consider essential for 14–19-year-old learners. There are usually two contrasting types of core unit. One type focuses on essential knowledge and the other type focuses on applying essential vocational skills. One of the core units is externally assessed.
The remainder of the qualification consists of specialist units. Specialist units are sector specific and focus on a particular area within that sector.
