Maths functional skills are practical mathematics for learners that provide essential skills, knowledge and understanding to enable students to function confidently and effectively at work and in their everyday life.

Maths functional skills help learners to use what they have learnt in a practical way and to be mathematically functional.

  5. Create each learner an online ILP
  6. Your Individual Learner Portfolio gives you information, practice quizzes and assessments, video clips and other resources to help your learning.
