ETF to manage reform programme for Functional Skills

Functional Skills reform off and running

The Education and Training Foundation have been commissioned by the Government to produce a programme to reform Functional Skills.

The initial report will be delivered to Ministers in August 2016 with the intention of having the new qualifications available for 2018.

Our view is that this is genuinely good news that shows Functional Skills have significant support from the Government. Indeed Nick Boles (BIS Minister) said that "Functional Skills are delivering an employer-recognised level of English and maths skills that help learners into lasting work".

Full details of the announcement.
