GCSE or Functional Skills - has the Government blundered over Apprenticeships?

The largest discussion ever within the linked-in group Apprenticeships 4 England has centred on an issue raised in the last newsletter about GCSE vs Functional Skills in Apprenticeships.
With just short of 100 comments from 20 contributors with Roger Francis (CL Partners) and Marius Frank (SCiP5) leading the way, it makes interesting reading and it shows how much the sector believes in Functional Skills as the best way forward in vocational education.

It just shows what a big issue this one is, and with the ball still very much in play, if you have a view then take a few minutes and record it.
