Supporting you through the Functional Skills reform

It’s recently been reported that there may be a potential delay in the release of the qualification specifications for the newly reformed qualifications. We understand that you’re eager to get the information as soon as possible to allow you the maximum time to set up for delivery before September.

We’d like to reassure you that at NCFE, we’ll be doing everything possible to provide you with information regarding the new qualifications and have a support programme in place over the coming months to ensure you feel confident with the content. Our submissions for the reformed qualifications have been submitted and we’re currently awaiting feedback from Ofqual. 

Our support programme will include continuing with our CPD delivery training events and free webinars as well as expanding on our support documents, which include preparation checklists, and mapping documents. Don’t forget we also offer a dedicated Curriculum team who offer free expertise in this area and can support you during this time of change. You can find further information on QualHub and we’ll be adding to this in the coming weeks. 

As always, if you have any questions or would like to discuss how we can support you further, then get in touch and email [email protected].
