Functional Skills qualifications

The qualifications are often a central part of a learner’s programme of study. They form a key part of apprenticeships and are also often studied alongside many college based vocational learning.

What’s more, these subjects are frequently cited by employers as being those which place the most importance when recruiting staff.
