The QFEmirates recognises the key competencies required for effective participation in the workplace, in learning and in daily life. These are generic skills rather than being specific to particular occupations, industries or disciplines, and are known, in the QFEmirates, as CoreLife Skills.
QFEmirates up and including level 6. In addition to literacy and numeracy the QFEmirates includes seven (7) CoreLife Skills, as shown below:
NQA expects that appropriate CoreLife Skills will be integrated into all into qualifications recognised on the QFEmirates at every level (i.e. level 1 to level 10). Qualifications developers should map where they are included, and therefore can be assessed, in every qualification. It is not expected that all seven CoreLife Skills will be integrated into small awards Qualification types.
