Abstract: This study was initiated by the need, frequently expressed by employers, for the education system to produce potential employees with better transferable skills. The paper reports a field trial at a UK university (following a four-year pilot of NVQ Level 4 Key Skills with another course). The project operated within a new foundation (Level 0) programme, aiming to simplify the paperwork employed in the pilot and incorporate skills assessment within modules, thereby obviating the need for a portfolio of evidence. The project was successful in only one or two modules, those where staff were committed to the aims.
