Modern Languages for Work Purposes
Modern Languages for Work Purposes is a suite of Units available at Access 3, Intermediate 1, Intermediate 2, Higher and Advanced Higher levels. The Units are built on a single generic specification, which covers 10 languages:
- Gaelic (learners)
The Units are suitable for use in a wide range of vocational settings, and encourage learners to reflect on skills required for employability.
The Units are free-standing so can be delivered stand-alone, but also may be used in conjunction with another Unit, or a group of Units, across a range of subject areas. They can be used to support courses devised in centres, or as part of NQ Group Awards, or NQ Progression Awards.
** Modern Languages for Work Purposes is also a component Unit of the Modern Languages for Life and Work Award at SCQF levels 3&4, which has been developed to meet the aims of Curriculum for Excellence. **
