These qualifications were developed in response to employers wanting more core skills in English, Mathematics and ICT, to prove staff could effectively problem solve. Having qualifications in functional skills shows you can apply English, Mathematics and ICT to real life contexts, enabling you to take on challenges in new settings and work independently. IQ Functional Skills qualifications are available in English, mathematics and ICT at:

  • Entry level 1
  • Entry level 2
  • Entry level 3
  • Level 1
  • Level 2

All of our level 1 and 2 Functional Skills can be delivered via either on-screen or paper-based assessment, providing flexibility to both learners and centres.


  • Registrations fully refundable if a candidate does not take the booked assessment
  • Fast turnaround of results for externally assessed papers once awarding has been achieved
