Functional skills in English, mathematics and ICT are a key component of the 14-19 reforms. They are incorporated in new GCSE criteria from 2010 and are a key requirement for diplomas, apprenticeships and the foundation learning tier (FLT).
The National Strategies and the Learning and Skills Information Service (LSIS) have joint responsibility for delivering training and support for the development of functional skills.
