The WBQ is only achievable if the Certificate is achieved. The majority of WBQ elements have been incorporated within the BTEC Units but some are taught as separate sessions. All six key skills must be completed by the end of the second year so students should have achieved three key skills at level 3 and three key skills at level 2.
