Exam Support Service

Teacher assessed grades and exams in 2021

The DfE Exam Support Service has been extended to include Functional Skills qualifications (FSQs) in apprenticeships, where assessments were planned to be delivered in the workplace.

This is is response to the difficulties many apprentices are experiencing in accessing an FSQ test.

The COVID guidance confirms that travel for education, training and assessment is allowable under current restrictions. Apprenticeship training providers will be able to access the service to book sites and invigilators for FSQ assessments and claim eligible costs.

To be eligible, the apprentice must:

  • have been expecting to take their FSQ assessment in the workplace
  • have a planned end date between 1 August – 31 December 2020
  • not be otherwise able to access an FSQ assessment

The Exam Support Service guidance includes full eligibility details and the process for making a claim.
