Level 3 Qualifications
Qualifications: what the different levels mean
A qualification shows employers, teachers and learners what you have learnt and what you can do as a result of that learning. In the UK, most qualifications fit into one of nine levels. The higher the level, the harder the qualification. The levels are based on the standards of knowledge, skill and competence needed for each qualification. Qualifications at the same level can be very different in terms of content and the length of time they take to complete.
