Functional Skills Mathematics

Here, you’ll find everything you need to deliver Edexcel Functional Skills in mathematics, including key documents, teaching resources and the latest news.

Our Edexcel maths Functional Skills qualifications are designed to develop the learner’s ability to represent situations using mathematics, analyse calculations, solve problems and interpret mathematics to explain situations. They’re assessed in a single, external test (either paper-based or onscreen on demand).

We are making changes to Functional Skills from September 2015, which are shown in this specification document. For more information see the 'News' page.
