Teens in School. Do they get "Skills" qualifications?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I work part-time in Further and Adult Education here in the UK and started my BA in Post-Compulsory Education this year. Yes I am with a toddler at home too but I've got only 3 modules and a dissertation to go and 4 years to finish it!

At the moment I am working on an assignment about Key Skills (working with others, problem solving, improving own learning, application of number, communication and ICT) which are followed by 16-19 year olds in vocational education. I think that there is something similar in the US but I don't know what it is called so am having trouble finding it through searches.

If anyone could tell me something about it I would be grateful and could get down to actually finishing the damn thing instead of surfing everytime I switch on the computer!

TIA
Rachel

I've never heard about anything like that. What is ICT?

Granted, I wasn't on a vocational education track in the public school but still...

ICT is the new name for using computers! It means Information and Communication Technologies. School is so diferent now from when I was there too!
