In response to demand, we are delighted to offer this half day seminar which first ran in March 2012.
Participants who attended said:
The session has removed some of the fear factors about functional skills.
I found out how the transition to functional skills will affect my approach ...I know the areas I need to consider with colleagues in order to ensure that we make the transition as smoothly as possible.
[I found out] where to go and who to contact to answer concerns regarding Functional Skills delivery, the exact criteria to follow.
just what we needed...
the messages were clear and I loved the approach ...
Managers and practitioners currently delivering key skills and Skills for Life who are preparing for the transition to Functional Skills
- To raise awareness about the policy context for Functional Skills
- To use the feedback from Functional Skills pilot programmes for adults to examine the benefits and challenges for learners and practitioners
By the end of the seminar delegates will have had the opportunity to:

- investigate assessment examples for Maths and English at level 1; and,
- consider the CPD required to deliver Functional Skills at all levels.
