The functional skills units

English

Communication skills are important to all organisations.  At work you will have to talk to people, follow instructions and read documents such as reports, health and safety information and so on.

The English functional skill is about making sure you get the right messages from written and spoken communication and that you are able to get the right message across to others.  It includes spelling, punctuation and grammar, but it is about much more than that it is about using these skills appropriately as part of your job.

Maths

All organisations need people who can handle numbers and calculations accurately.  Your job will involve you in using numbers in some way you may need to handle money, calculate sales figures, measure, calculate costs or understand graphs or charts.

The maths functional skill is not just about doing sums it is about using maths in practical situations that are relevant to your work.

Information and communication technology

Successful businesses make good use of new technology and they want the people who work in them to be confident about using computers and other kinds of information technology.

The information and communication technology functional skill is about using IT to find, input, reorganise and present information.  It means being able to find what you want on the internet or a database, sending e-mails, entering information on to a computer and presenting information using word processing or graphics programs.  As with all the other functional skills, the emphasis is on using your IT skills in a practical situation to do with your work.
