Functional Skills

Functional Skills are a vital part of the apprenticeship. They provide the essential knowledge, skills and understanding needed to operate confidently, effectively and independently. They are available at Level 1 and Level 2 and the level the apprentice will work towards will depend on the previous qualifications achieved, the results of an assessment prior to the apprenticeship and the requirements of the apprenticeship they are completing.


Apprentices will access the end point assessment following agreement from their employer and Learning and skills coach, where entry requirements are assessed and verified, this will include checking that the required level of English and maths has been achieved. The end point assessment will consist of the following 4 stages: Portfolio of work (20%) through a mixture of written documents, audio and video evidence that showcases the professional application of on-programme learning. Online knowledge test (30%) to showcase leadership and management knowledge by answering a series of questions, explaining how they would respond to a range of different scenarios.
