By studying Community Access Level 1 learners will develop practical skills to enable them to be confident and active members of their community.

Community Access Level 1 consists of six (6) Units, all of which are compulsory:
Unit 1 – Local community knowledge
Unit 2 – Getting around the community
Unit 3 – Living independently within a community
Unit 4 – Appropriate communication for community interactions
Unit 5 – Social skills
Unit 6 – Planning and organising activities.
The topics listed in the Course Content are not necessarily of equal length and course providers may organise the listed material in any order and in a way that helps their learners to achieve all the required outcomes. Each Unit may be delivered discretely or using an integrated approach whereby several Units are delivered concurrently.
The learning will have a practical emphasis.
