Speaking, Listening and Communication (SLC) assessments
Speaking, Listening and Communication (SLC) assessments for legacy Functional Skills English Level 1 and 2 must have been completed as the assessment deadline has now closed.
We strongly recommend that customers submit results to Skillsfirst for those SLC assessments which have already taken place.
As previously advised, we do not plan to offer paper-based assessment opportunities for these qualifications, but will continue to accept reasonable adjustment requests on a case-by-case basis.
For learners who have not achieved a pass for Functional Skills Maths Level 1 or 2, or all three components of Functional Skills English Level 1 or 2 they will need to be registered on the relevant Reformed Functional Skills qualification.
The final certification date is 31st July 2021. Skillsfirst are not permitted to certificate any learners after this date.
Please ensure that anyone involved in the delivery of legacy Functional Skills English and Maths is aware of these timescales, including assessors, tutors, invigilators and administrators.
If you have any questions relating to the above, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
