Alternative Edge is an accredited qualification which concentrates on students developing their independence and employability skills.

The main focus is developing skills in the following areas:
• Leadership
• Organisation
• Resilience
• Initiative
• Communication
Throughout the course, students are able to select different activities from an approved list which demonstrate their skills in these areas. There is also the opportunity for students to design their own Alternative Edge Activity under the ‘Initiative’ banner.

The qualification is delivered in school through Alternative Edge lessons although there is scope for students to include off-site provision and anything they may already be doing outside of school provided they can evidence their activity.

There are three levels to the qualification:
• Apprentice
• Graduate
• Master
