How do I prove my functional skills level in Maths and English

Within apprenticeships, you are required to prove you have functional skills in Maths and English by the time you complete the programme.  You may be exempt, in which case you can use options 1 and 2.

Option 1 – Your first port of call is that if you have completed a Maths and English qualification within the last 10 years, your school, college or training provider should have uploaded the details to the Learner Records Service and this is seen as proof that you have completed this element.  However, not all training providers are fastidious as CQM and sometimes the record is missing (so you may need to prompt them if you can).

Option 2 – Your second option is to find your certificate to prove you have the qualification.  Or if you know your awarding organisation, you can request a replacement certificate.

Option 3 – Your final option is that you will need to undertake functional skills qualification including the examination, at the level required, during the programme.
