The work on Functional Skills reform continues into 2017: we have been liaising with specially recruited expert subject-writers to develop a set of exemplar materials to support the teaching of revised FS maths and English at all levels (Entry 1 to Level 2). Draft materials have been reviewed and tested by practitioners to ensure pedagogically-sound support.
The new engaging content and activities will be made available on the Excellence Gateway.
Our work supporting the Education and Training Foundation on Functional Skills reform began in 2015 when, in partnership with Learning & Work Institute, we delivered a series of national consultations designed to achieve an up-dated set of National Adult Standards, Functional Skills Subject Content. This work was designed to lead to revised Functional Skills maths and English qualifications, recognised and valued by employers.
