Functional Skills is an Ofqual approved qualification, universally equivalent to a GCSE Grade C or Level 4. This is an equivalent qualification to a PASS in GCSE and is widely accepted by Universities and jobs. There are a number of functional skills providers out there but we would recommend Pass Functional Skills.
You may find that gaining your functional skills qualification can be quite challenging especially if you haven’t studied them for a number of years. At Skipton Tutors, we help students with Maths and English functional skills preparation. Our specialist tutors have experience in tutoring these subjects and will offer support in revision tips, timetabling and how to prepare for the exam day. Most functional skills services are now online since the pandemic, which means you are able to obtain your qualifications from the comfort of your own home. Just keep in mind that exam conditions are still to be maintained the same way as any other formal examination.
There are a number of different resources available for functional skills but remember to only use materials from 2019 onwards as the specification has since been revised. At Skipton Tutors, we ensure that all our learners are set up with the relevant materials for the examinations they are preparing for. Whether it is a functional skills provider you need help finding, support with your preparation or finding the right revision materials, Skipton Tutors is here to help.
