Reformed Functional Skills
Open Awards are delighted to announce that we will be developing the new Functional Skills qualifications ready for September 2019. The quality and standard of our qualifications and assessments are of the utmost importance to us, so we are pleased to be working with a group of like-minded Awarded Bodies on the new development to ensure that we can offer you the best quality product and service as we implement these changes.
We are delighted that our Levels 1 and 2 English Functional Skills Qualifications have completed Ofqual's technical evaluation process and are now available for first teaching from 1st September 2019.
The draft qualification specifications/guides and Sample Assessments for all subject and levels can be downloaded below.
Please note that Levels 1 and 2 Maths, and Entry Levels 1-3 English and Maths are currently undergoing Ofqual’s technical evaluation process so may change before first teaching of September 2019.
