Work-related qualifications are related to a specific job role or career and can be a very good option if you have already decided what you want to do. You may hear Work-related qualifications referred to as Vocational or Technical courses depending on the area. They include OCR Nationals and T-levels (technical equivalent to an A-level). Some schools and colleges will offer Work-related qualifications alongside academic options so you should speak to your school or college to find out what is available.
If you are thinking about a Higher-level qualification (18+), you should check the UCAS website as this can show you what Universities offer Technical courses to suit you.
