Applied Capability Qualifications

The Department for Education, Children and Young People is the provider of the Applied Capability Qualifications and maintains quality assurance, recording of overall assessments and issuing of certificates to each student who successfully completes one or more of the qualifications. 

Key Features 

  • The qualifications are aligned with employability skills and real-world contexts and would be appropriate to include on a student’s resume under other qualifications/certification. 
  • Each qualification is at a TASC complexity level 2, and on successful completion, a student’s qualification will be recognised by TASC and allocated two TCE credit points. 
  • The qualifications are asynchronous and self-paced and are nominally 20 hours in size.
