IQ Functional Skills
Functional Skills were developed in response to calls from employers for more emphasis on the application of ‘core’ skills in English, mathematics and ICT. Employers recommended that learners would benefit in a thorough grounding in these skills and the ability to problem solve.
Being functional means that learners are able to:
- Apply their English, maths and ICT skills to all sorts of real life contexts
- Be able to take on challenges in a range of new settings
- Work independently.
