These qualifications enable learners to develop their personal and social development skills whilst gaining confidence and self-esteem. The units cover areas such as: developing own skills and setting goals; social skills, such as managing relationships and working with others; knowledge for living in the wider community, such as rights and responsibilities, and community action; and life skills, such as healthy living, budgeting, and preparing for work.

Delivery and assessment of the qualifications should be as practical and relevant to the learner as possible, including opportunities for visits, guest speakers and role play.

Pearson Edexcel Level 2 Personal and Social Development (QCF) 

The PSD qualifications have been designed to support learners working from Entry 2 to Level 2, although the Level 2 qualification is not part of the Foundation Learning framework.

However, learners may take units from the Level 2 qualification within the Entry 2-3 and Level 1 PSD qualifications. This helps learners build on their areas of strength and better prepares them for progression to the next level. The Level 2 specification is included below for this purpose.
