We have taken the decision to withdraw from providing Entry Level, Level 1 and Level 2 English and Maths Functional Skills qualifications at the end of 2020, as we don’t believe we’re able to provide a service that best suits English and Maths Functional Skills teaching and learning. To support teachers looking for external assessments for Level 1 and Level 2 Functional Skills this year, we will provide paper-based tests scheduled for specific times in March and in June/July. Please see here for more details.
Functional Skills qualifications are designed to enable students to develop confidence and fluency in maths and English.
They equip students with the practical skills to get the most out of education, work and everyday life and to help them function more confidently, effectively and independently.
