Functional Skills

Functional Skills - Learn, Progress, Assess

Bringing together knowledge and assessment, Functional Skills is the complete package to support your learners in passing their qualification.

Thorough diagnostic assessments evaluate the level of the learner’s current knowledge and then create an individual learning plan, highlighting weak spots and areas of strength. Short videos, written by Functional Skills tutors and examiners, include worked examples and real-life application of skills. Check and Challenge provides opportunities for learners to test themselves and exam-style assignments allow for assessment practice. Evidence of learner attainment and engagement is easily tracked at a group and individual level in addition to effortless reporting and sharing of information.
