Video conferencing software such as; Teams, Zoom, Google Meet etc can be used to remotely invigilate an onscreen Functional Skills English or maths test. This is an interim solution to facilitate remote invigilation enabling learners to complete their Functional Skills and progress while we develop a longer-term solution. On this page you will find all the guidance you and your learners need for this. You will also find the form you need to complete for every learner you are using this for.

Please ensure that you have received approval to run assessments in this way before starting any assessments.
