Whether you are a private training provider, an FE College or a commercial organisation running your own embedded Apprenticeship programme, Functional Skills represents a major challenge.
The successful delivery of a Functional Skills programme requires the input of skilled, qualified and experienced practitioners. These are often not the core skills of existing Assessors.
This challenge has become even more pressing, with the news that from August 2014, all new learners starting an Apprenticeship programme will be required to pass a Level 2 qualification in Functional Skills.
We focus purely on Functional Skills delivery and all of our people are fully qualified and possess in-depth experience of delivering Functional Skills in the workplace. As such we are ideally placed to ensure that your Apprenticeship programme remains on track by delivering the Functional Skills component on time and with very high success rates.
Without an effective Functional Skills solution, there is a genuine danger that Apprenticeships programmes will lose momentum and will be put at risk.
Rather than put existing staff through extensive re-training or recruiting new people, an increasing number of providers are sub-contracting the delivery of Functional Skills to specialist organisations like ourselves.
