Functional Skills are the fundamental English and Maths skills that people need for their working and personal lives. People can study for the qualifications in practical ways and apply core skills to real-life situations.
English and Maths are essential subjects that are included in most training and education programmes. They are a required part of Diplomas, Foundation Learning Programmes and Apprenticeships. Functional Skills can be studied as stand-alone qualifications or as a stepping stone to GCSEs.
