Functional Skills events

Improving your understanding of Functional Skills

As part of our commitment to continually support you in your delivery of Functional Skills, we run a series of Functional Skills network events at our local offices throughout the UK.

Our events are free of charge and will provide a useful opportunity for centres delivering City & Guilds Functional Skills qualifications to network, receive useful updates and share good practice.
