Developing Functional Skills: Learning from the adult pilots

Sprache: EN

Eingesandt von Jodie Crossley

Functional Skills in English and Maths are vital for young people and adults to participate in life, learning and work. Functional Skills training focuses on problem solving, and gives learners practical strategies for applying and transferring skills in everyday situations. Functional Skills provide a single route to achievement from Entry level to Level 2 for all learners in all sectors.

On behalf of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, NIACE gathered feedback and case studies from colleges, offender institutions, work-based learning providers, the voluntary and community sector and local authorities involved in Functional Skills pilots for adults. Overall, feedback from the pilots is positive about Functional Skills and recognises their benefits for adult learners. However, there are still challenges for providers and tutors making the transition to Functional Skills.

This booklet looks at the lessons learnt from these pilots, the current context of Functional Skills, its strengths and what is needed to develop a successful approach to teaching Functional Skills. This booklet will be of interest to those involved in funding, planning, managing and delivering literacy and numeracy provision for adults.
