These qualifications are intended for anyone wishing to develop ICT skills. The purpose of the Functional Skills ICT is to provide learners with a certificate which recognises their abilities across a range of skills and functions as defined by Ofqual’s ICT standards and sector skills councils (SSCs) have included FS ICT in those qualifications/ apprenticeships as they feel necessary. Learners must complete all aspects of the required learning in order to demonstrate their competence and achieve their certificate. Functional Skills ICT is also available at Level 2.
All skill areas are assessed. Specifications are developed to ensure sufficient coverage of the criteria and consistency/ reliability of assessments over time. The assessment involves completing a series of related tasks to reach a purposeful outcome using office applications. Candidates work through tasks and follow instructions to solve problems and reach given solutions. Work is either evidenced by printouts (paper delivery) or uploaded within the testing environment (on-screen).
