Revised NPA in Business Skills

We have revised the content of the National Progression Award (NPA) in Business Skills by removing the requirement to complete the Work Placement Unit (HF88 46). A new Business Skills NPA (GR3P 46) has been created to reflect the change to the content and structure of the award.

The group award specification for the new NPA is available from the NPA Business Skills webpage. The previous NPA in Business Skills (GL8H 46) has now entered a lapsing phase and will finish on 31 July 2023.

The NPA in Business Skills is a component within the Foundation Apprenticeship in Business Skills at SCQF level 6. Please note that the Work Placement unit (HF88 46 or the Work Based Challenge Unit J4YL 04) is still required for successful completion of the Foundation Apprenticeship.
