Useful centre-related documents
Pearson has created a document to provide important information and considerations that centres need to be aware of with the reformed Functional Skills. Following their consultation last year, the Department for Education (DfE) have published the new reformed Functional Skills subject content for English and Mathematics from Entry 1 to Level 2.
From September 2019, all new Functional Skills assessments will be based on this subject content. Ofqual has also published documents covering the conditions and requirements for the reformed English and maths.
These mapping documents will help support your transition into the reformed Functional Skills English and Mathematics qualifications, set for first teaching in September 2019.
