Foundation learning has been developed for low attaining 14- to 19-year olds (as well as 19- to 24-year olds with high-level special needs) to help raise their participation, attainment and progression. There is no overarching qualification; instead young people work on a personalised programme that leads to a mix of small, flexible qualifications, as a basis for progression to further learning or employment. Foundation learning can be delivered in schools and colleges, or by private or third-sector training providers.
