    The study programme covers core units that focus on key transferable skills, such as research and planning, time management, and working with others. Learners will also take a number of sector units; the content of the sector units offer a broad introduction to the skills and knowledge within that sector, allowing the delivery to be practical and active in order to engage the learners. For business, the units cover activities such as role-playing customer service situations, pitching business ideas, and creating visual displays.
