Functional Skills are a key component of Apprenticeships in England, sitting alongside GCSE as the requirement for English and mathematics (and ICT for selected frameworks).

Our English Functional Skills qualifications are designed to equip learners with skills such as comparing the ideas and presentation of texts, writing for a specified audience and purpose, and communicating and adapting language. They’re assessed in three units (Speaking, Listening and Communication; Reading; and Writing) through a choice of paper-based or onscreen, on-demand tests.
