About this seminar

In 2015, the Education & Training Foundation's "Making Maths and English work for all review" found that Functional Skills were well liked and useful, but that their relevance and content could be improved, along with their credibility in the labour market. A three-year Reform Programme was therefore announced, starting in October 2015 with extensive consultation with employers, learners and the FE sector, with a view to developing new standards to underpin a reformed set of qualifications for use from 2018.

As we approach the half-way point of the Functional Skills Reform Programme, we are delighted that Sue Southwood, ‎Head of Maths and English, Professional Standards and Workforce Development at the Education and Training Foundation, will be joining us to update us on progress and consider the future development and impact of Functional Skills qualifications.

The session will be chaired by Tricia Hartley. As with all sessions, there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion and the seminar will be held under the Chatham House Rule to facilitate open discussion and debate.
