The Functional Skills English Diagnostic Assessments are mapped to the Functional Skills Standards, identify skill gaps, and produce an interactive Individual Learning Plan which links to the Functional Skills topic modules containing Interactive Resources and Skill Checks.

The Functional Skills English Self-Learning Course is mapped to the elements of the Functional Skills English Standards, and link to the results of the Functional Skills English Diagnostic. The Self-Learning Course include information, examples and demonstration videos to teach various topics, with learners able to replay and pause the latter at any time, in order to review them in more detail. These are followed by sections entitled ‘Now it’s your turn’ which contain a mixture of self-marking and standalone activities, which themselves display either the correct answers and/or sample responses for learners to compare against their own.
4 – Functional Skills English – Skill Checks (Entry Level 3 – Level 2)
The Functional Skills English Skill Checks link to the Interactive Resource(s) in the topic modules, and confirm competency within them. If a learner achieves 75% or above, a module is marked as achieved.
