FUNCTIONAL SKILLS

Functional skills

Functional skills are an integral part of all Apprenticeships.  They are the skills used in all jobs and industries.  There are three functional skills for Apprenticeships.  The Apprenticeship framework will specify which functional skill is required and at what level in order to complete the Apprenticeship.

The three functional skills are:


English

Maths

Information and communication technology

Functional skills levels

Level 1 describes the skills that people use in routine situations and tasks that occur regularly at work.

Level 2 asks people to take more responsibility for some of the decisions about how to apply key skills.

Why do we need functional skills?

Changes in work and technology mean that more than just the technical skills are needed for the job.  Employers are looking for people who can:

   Communicate well, both in speaking and writing

   Use numbers to do calculations, pricing and measurements

   Use new technology

People who work well in groups, are well organised and can solve their problems are the people who get on best at work and get promoted.
