Functional Skills Maths
Functional Skills qualifications are a set of capabilities designed to enable students to develop confidence and fluency in maths, English and information and communication technology (ICT) – a vital skillset to equip learners with the practical abilities to get the most out of their apprenticeship, employment, and everyday life.
Why are Maths Functional Skills important?
Functional skills are designed to give apprentices the basic knowledge they need to do well in both work and general life. Functional Skills are meant to be practical – so in Maths for instance, apprentices will learn how to solve problems, use fractions and other calculations, but they will also be taught to apply this to real life situations to meet personal and employer needs.
