Functional Skills Update

As you’ll be aware, Maths and English Functional Skills qualifications are changing from 1st September 2019. We are delighted to inform you that Open Awards has completed Ofqual’s technical evaluation for our qualifications at Entry Level 1 – Level 2 (Maths and English) and the qualifications are available for delivery from 1st September. We are also continuing to offer Functional Skills ICT (Entry Level 1 – Level 2).
