Section 1 examines the following topics of interest to centers that are contemplating introducing Part One GNVQs into their curriculum: the characteristics of the Part One GNVQs qualification; the distinctive learning style encouraged by Part One GNVQs; and things to consider when adding Part One GNVQs to the curriculum. Section 2, which is designed to assist teachers in devising their teaching and learning programs, provides in-depth information on the following items: deciding which unit to deliver first; establishing links between foundation and intermediate units; building in work-related learning opportunities; encouraging active learning styles; assessing students; preparing students for tests; using moderation; and considering progression opportunities available to students. Section 3 features case studies of five institutions that are delivering Part One GNVQs at Key Stage 4 and three institutions that are delivering Part One GNVQs at the post-16 level.
