AS level and A (Advanced) level qualifications focus on traditional study skills. They normally take two years to complete full-time in school or college, and can be taken part-time. In Scotland, students usually take Highers and Advanced Highers. The 14–19 Diploma was a qualification for 14- to 19-year-olds, offering a more practical, hands-on way of gaining the essential skills employers and universities look for. The 14–19 Diplomas were at levels 1 to 3 on the NQF.

Since its introduction over 50 years ago, the A-level has been a constant subject of debate in schools, HE and government. Sometimes hailed as a 'gold standard', there is now intense speculation about the future of the A-level in particular, but also about post-14 qualifications in general. In September 2000, new qualifications for 16–19 year olds, known as Curriculum 2000, were introduced in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland with the aim of broadening the advanced level curriculum.

The report proposes a national framework based on the present qualifications that seeks to bring the structure of Advanced ("A") levels and the General National Vocational Qualification (GNVQ) into close alignment.

We support the use of Part One GNVQs for 16-19 year olds (95) building on the development work for 14-16 years olds

We support the use of Part One GNVQs for 16-19 year olds (95) building on the development work for 14-16 years olds. In the interest of a greater understanding of this phase of education we support the proposed change in title of Advanced GNVQ to Applied A level, and that the full GNVQ of 12 units be known as Double Award Applied A level (96, 97).
