QCA report published following the consultation on the draft Functional Skills standards

Between January to May 2006 QCA consulted on the draft standards for Functional Skills.

 

The consultation provided a consistent message about the need for:

  • a clearer explanation of levels,
  • clarity and specificity of language throughout the standards
  • a clearer definition of the progression between levels
  • clarity about who the standards were aimed at
  • more examples of ‘application’ of the skills – ‘real skills’ for ‘real world’ situations.

 

Revised standards will be published soon on the QCA website.

 

For the full report visit the Functional Skills section of the QCA website.
