This workshop is being delivered again due to popular demand


This one day workshop will provide a sound overview of the differences between the current (legacy) Functional Skills English and maths and the reformed Functional Skills English and maths at Levels 1 and 2 and consider the transitional requirements.

Activities will allow time to reflect on any changes needed within your organisation and start to formulate a transitional plan for a smooth implementation in September 2019. 

The workshop is aimed at practitioners delivering, or managers supporting, the implementation of the reformed Functional Skills English and mathematics qualifications.

The workshop will focus on:

  • establishing the differences between the legacy Level 1 and 2 English and mathematics Functional Skills and the reformed Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications;
  • identifying areas of increased challenge for learners and staff delivering the reforms;
  • review of resources that support the new delivery requirements;
  • planning for implementation and impact on resource and programme development;
  • planning for transitional requirements of the legacy qualifications and increased quality assurance for the revised versions.
