BIS confirmation that Functional Skills stays in all Apprenticeships till at least 2020

Just had direct confirmation from BIS that GCSE is NOT a requirement of Apprenticeships and Adult Learning until 2020, Only by then will Awarding Organisations have had the chance to develop with suitable on-line assessments.

So Functional Skills STAYS as the qualification of choice for all Apprenticeships and Adult Learning.

There was some talk that learners with a grade D must take GCSE - this only applies to full time  courses for students aged 16-18 with a grade D at GCSE from August 2015.  They will be expected and funded to retake GCSE. 

Guroo has a fantastic solution for Functional Skills!
