Functional skills are the fundamental knowledge and abilities in English, math, and information and communication technology (ICT) that people need to address challenges in both their professional and personal life. You can use these foundational courses in real-world settings by studying them in those settings.
Functional talents are adaptable abilities that can be used in a variety of businesses and professions. They are prerequisites for apprenticeships and are equivalent with the GCSE. They can be applied to a wide range of fields, including accountancy, business, teaching, sports, engineering, and tourism.
