Functional Skills English

The aim of the Functional Skills in English qualifications are therefore to equip learners with the skills and confidence to apply, combine and adapt their English knowledge to new situations in their life and work. They are concerned with developing and recognising the ability of learners to apply and transfer skills in ways that are appropriate to their situation. The assessments therefore focus on functionality and the application of skills as articulated by the Functional Skills criteria in English.
