This qualification is aimed at individuals wishing to gain knowledge of the basic requirements of working safely and effectively in the print production working environment, and is particularly suited to individuals undertaking an apprenticeship within the print production working environment. Establishing underpinning knowledge and understanding relevant to the print industry, this qualification is intended to be capable of delivery through both a taught programme of off-the-job learning or through workplace assessment (for those with access to the real workplace). Along with a generic print industry unit and a unit on employment rights and responsibilities, the optional pathways within the qualification will ensure there is a qualification to cover the individual occupational roles in the print production working environment. Further qualifications are available at Level 3 and for those employed in an administrative role within the print industry.
