Functional Skills Entry Level 1, 2 & 3 – Autumn, Spring & Summer

The aims of these qualifications (E1, E2, E3) are to develop learner understanding and skills in:

• Representing – selecting the mathematics and information to model a situation.
• Analysing – processing and using mathematics.
• Interpreting – interpreting and communication the results of the analysis

E1: Internally assessed. Task availability on demand. 100% of the total qualification

Representing using mathematics, analysing situations mathematically, interpreting solutions to problems using mathematics and coverage of mathematical content in number, geometry and statistics. Calculators are allowed, assessment can be tutor mediated, the total number of marks available is 20. Assessment is 1 hour and 30 minutes long.

A learner should be able to: understand and use numbers with one significant figure in practical contexts
• describe the properties of size and measure, including length, width, height and weight, and make simple comparisons
• describe position
• recognise and select coins and notes
• recognise and name common 2-D and 3-D shapes
• sort and classify objects practically using a single criterion

E2

At Entry 2, the skills standards and coverage and range subsume the skill standards and indicative coverage and range at Entry 1, supporting progression to Entry 3.

E3

At Entry 3, the skills standards and coverage and range subsume the skill standards and indicative coverage and range at Entry 2, supporting progression from Entry to level 1.
