What are Functional Skills ?

Functional Skills used to be called Basic Skills, they are the everyday literacy, numeracy and IT skills needed to get by in modern life.

Why the name change ?  Well, we do not know.

Functional Skills now appear in the PTLLS asignment work for those wishing to teach adults – so clearly they are considered a vital part of adult life.
