The value and rigour of Functional Skills

The value and rigour of Functional Skills
The 2013 Functional Skills Annual Survey was completed by more than 400 respondents in the sector.  The results reveal very substantial (and growing) support for Functional Skills.  In the light of the GCSE vs FS discussion above, we thought it would be worthwhile repeating the results of the survey. 

Not very
 Not at all
Functional Skills is a rigorous qualification
Functional Skills is a valuable qualification 
I'm fully prepared and trained to deliver FS
Learners enjoy taking Functional Skills
Tutors enjoy teaching Functional Skills

The overwhelming evidence is that Functional Skills is rigorous (90% agree), valuable (87%) enjoyable (68%) with 88% of respondents feeling fully prepared and trained in delivery.
