Legacy Functional Skills English and Maths Levels 1 and 2 (FSE01, FSE02, FSM01, FSM02) - final assessment and certification dates

 

We would like to take this opportunity to remind customers that the final date for legacy Functional Skills English and Maths Level 1 and 2 onscreen assessments is Friday 28th May 2021.

 

Please note, learners have a maximum of four opportunities to take onscreen exams during the period 1st August 2020 - 28th May 2021 (this does not include any failed attempts prior to these dates). If learners fail the exam after the fourth attempt, the centre will be required to transfer the learner to the relevant Reformed Functional Skills qualification.

 

Speaking, Listening and Communication (SLC) assessments for legacy Functional Skills English Level 1 and 2 must be completed and submitted to Skillsfirst no later than Friday 28th May 2021.

 

We strongly recommend that customers submit results to Skillsfirst for those SLC assessments which have already taken place on an ongoing basis, rather than waiting for learners to pass the Reading and Writing components. If you do not have direct claim status, please ensure you contact Skillsfirst to arrange a remote monitoring activity for the SLC component.

 

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.

 

If learners 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 by Friday 28th May 2021, 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.

 

 

Skillsfirst’s requirements for the adaptation of assessment methodology for legacy Speaking, Listening and Communication (SLC) assessments can be found here
