The value of Functional Skills


The UK Government developed the Functional Skills programme as part of an initiative to improve the country’s literacy and mathematics standards. Functional skills are an alternative way for those learners who did not gain certain GSCEs to obtain UK educational standards for English, Maths and ICT that are recognised by bother employers and adult/further education institutions.

English, Maths and ICT are essential subjects that are included in most training and education programmes. They are a required component of Diplomas, Foundation Learning Programmes and Apprenticeships, and provide a springboard for a career in almost any UK industry.

Functional Skills can also be undertaken in preparation for sitting a GCSE exam in the associated subject. Many learners who study Functional Skills use them as a refresher course before an exam resit.

Methods of study


Each academic discipline has its own Functional Skills qualification, awarded by the City & Guilds foundation:

Functional Skills – Maths

Functional Skills – English

Functional Skills – ICT

Each of our Functional Skills training courses can either be taken up as a learning programme with an exam, or as a standalone exam in the relevant discipline.

All of our Functional Skills course offerings are Ofqual accredited and verified by City & Guilds.
