Functional Skills guidance has recently been posted on the Read Write Plus website. The functional skills guidance provides an update on the latest Functional Skills (FS) pilot developments and informs you of the support available during the pilot phase of the programme. It also provides an update on the position of the new Functional Skills qualifications in relation to the Skills for Life qualifications. Functional Skills qualifications will replace Key Skills qualifications from 2010 and it is anticipated they will also replace Skills for Life qualifications, although this is currently being tested to ensure Functional Skills are suitable for adults.
