Functional Skills

I had no sooner added a link to Totally Skilled's embedded learning models, for example in IT and Health, where the embedded skills are functional rather than basic, than I came across them in a meeting, where part of this document was circulated. It's a few months old, but I had never realised that functional skills were going to take over from Basic Skills and Key Skills. August 2012 is currently the final date for Skills for Life awards.

It will be interesting to see how the Core Curriculum fares in this brave new world.
