Functional Skills are qualifications designed to equip learners with the basic skills needed to function in everyday life. They offer learners – of any age – the opportunity to study English, maths, and ICT in a more practical and ‘hands-on’ way, and apply knowledge to life, education, and the workplace.
Widely introduced in September 2012, and developed by the Government in a bid to improve the country’s English, maths, and ICT skills, Functional Skills can be studied as stand-alone qualifications, or as a ‘stepping tome’ to GCSEs. Functional Skills also form part of Apprenticeships, Diplomas, and Foundation Learning Programmes.
The four-step Skills Anytime Functional Skills process helps learners to identify their weaknesses, and improve their skills in order to successfully complete Functional Skills qualifications.
