Employability Units

At least one employability unit must be completed for any qualification. All employability units must be at the same level as the overall qualification i.e. even if more than one employability unit is completed they must all be at the same level as each other and at the same level of the qualification.

Note: Currently work experience cannot be used as a standalone employability unit for the award qualification at any level i.e. another employability unit must be achieved alongside or instead of work experience for an award qualification.

Assessment windows

You can keep up-to-date with the latest deadlines (pdf, 232kb).

Making entries

Centres should only make certificate claims for units and qualifications when they are satisfied that the portfolios meet all the assessment criteria and the work has been internally verified.

  • Units and qualifications can be purchased by logging onto the Prince's Trust Qualifications Portal.
  • Making a claim on The Portal is the official stage of informing The Prince’s Trust that these learners are being submitted for External Verification. All entries will be charged, so it is important that learners are only entered for the units that have been completed, assessed and internally verified.
