Functional skills are designed to equip learners with the skills to operate confidently, effectively and independently in life, learning and work. They have been designed in response to employers’ perceptions that many learners are not achieving a firm enough grounding in the basics.

The purpose of the Gateway Qualifications Functional Skills in ICT is to ensure that learners develop understanding and skills in:

  • using ICT;
  • finding and selecting information;
  • and developing, presenting and communicating information.
