Functional Skills

The aim of the Functional Skills in mathematics qualifications is to equip learners with the skills and confidence to apply, combine and adapt their mathematics knowledge to new situations in their life and work. It is concerned with developing and recognising the ability of learners to apply and transfer skills in ways that are appropriate to their situation.
