Functional Skills Mathematics

  • Teaching from: September 2019
  • Exams from: January 2020
  • Specification code: Draft 8361 8362

This draft specification for Functional Skills Maths Level 1 and Level 2 (8361, 8362) aims to prepare learners for life and work, while creating a stepping stone to further studies such as GCSE Maths. It takes a real-life approach to learning, with problem-solving questions about personal finance, planning and organising activities and the world of work.

There are no prior learning requirements for this pass/fail qualification.

This draft qualification has not yet been accredited by Ofqual. It is published to enable teachers to have early sight of our proposed approach to the new specification. Further changes may be required and no assurance can be given that this proposed qualification will be made available in its current form, or that it will be accredited in time for first teaching.
