Consultation description

Functional skills qualifications (FSQs) in English and mathematics are being reformed and will be introduced for first teaching in September 2019.

In September 2017 we consulted on our approach to regulating new FSQs in English and mathematics and we have now confirmed our approach.

In our initial consultation, we set out the purposes of the reformed functional skills qualifications and confirmed that through our regulatory approach we are looking to increase the comparability between qualifications offered by different awarding organisations and over time, and to ensure there is greater control of standards.

This consultation builds on the decisions we have made and seeks views on the detailed conditions, requirements and guidance we want to put in place for new functional skills qualifications in English and mathematics.
