Reform of Functional Skills qualifications

Monday 22 Oct 2018

Following Ofqual’s plans to reform all Functional Skills Qualifications, the final sitting of our current Functional Skills Level 1 and 2 Mathematics qualifications will be November 2019; there will be no resit opportunity.

We’re submitting new qualifications to Ofqual for accreditation and we expect to hear back early in 2019.

We’ve designed our new Functional Skills Level 1 and 2 maths qualifications so they’re co-teachable with our GCSE Mathematics. We hope these qualifications will be ready for first teaching in September 2019 with the first opportunity to sit new these new qualifications in January 2020.

Draft materials will be available on our website from mid/late November 2018.
