About this Qualification

Functional Skills English are free standing qualifications designed to give learners the skills to operate confidently, effectively and independently in education, work and everyday life. They have been created in response to employers’ recommendations that learners would benefit from a thorough grounding in the basics and the ability to problem-solve. PRIT functional skills qualifications are available in English, mathematics and ICT at Entry Level 1, 2, 3 and levels 1 and 2. They assess the functional skills standards, coverage and range.

The course may be delivered using a variety of methods such as classroom sessions, distance learning or a blended
method. The course will require self-directed study alongside tutor support.

Assessment for these qualifications is summative and should only be attempted when the learners have acquired the
functional English skills and knowledge to achieve success. Assessment can take place in any supervised environment which can support an electronic or paper-based assessment  and includes the learner’s workplace.For these qualifications, each component is individually assessed and learners will only be certificated once all three components have been successfully completed. Learners can achieve components at any level; however the qualification is awarded at the level of the lowest component achieved. Learners are automatically notified of their performance electronically once their assessments have been awarded. A summary of component achievements will be included with the qualification certificate.The assessment tasks cover all of the skills standards, coverage and range. Learners must achieve all the skill standards and each of the coverage and range for each component. The qualification is not graded; successful learners who achieve all three components will achieve a pass.
