Your perfect Functional Skills solution

We were the first company to introduce an online Functional Skills package and are the leading provider for the post-16 market.

We passionately believe in Functional Skills and will be awaiting the results of the Functional Skills Reform Programme. Unfortunately, as you may have heard, this has been put back until 2019, but you can be assured that our assessments and resources will reflect any revisions once the new standards have been made available.

Our initial assessment will precisely identify not only each learner’s overall working-towards level but also their spiky profile as well. The assessments are adaptive, responding to learner answers and offering correspondingly easier or harder questions. The questions are banked so a learner will never sit an identical assessment twice. The initial assessment will accurately assess a learner’s level from pre-entry to level 2, and also includes a built-in dyslexia and dyscalculia screener.

Our Functional Skills resources are based on real-world scenarios and have been carefully crafted to engage learners of all levels and learning styles. Our package includes our ground-breaking video tutorials in English, maths and ICT, many with set challenges.
