Information » Education » Qualifications
Qualifications matter as they prove that you‘ve gained knowledge or developed your skills, can help you to get a job, get into higher education or gain a place on a training course.
There are lots of different qualifications you can study for at different levels, with advice available to help you find something to suit your abilities and interests. You could study for academic qualifications such as A levels or a degree, or you could choose a qualification that’s related to a specific job that you’d like to do.
Certain jobs and careers require specific qualifications; for example medicine and law require a degree qualification, as well as experience and training. Some qualifications can be worked towards while you work and gain experience; for example youth work qualifications.
You will find that many jobs advertised will ask for certain qualifications from the people applying. You may also need certain qualifications to apply for a particular training course.
