Functional Skills Levels

There are different levels of Functional Skills for English and maths and it’s important to understand what they mean.

The first step on the learner journey, with our Functional Skills solution (High Achieve), is to complete the online Initial Assessment. This online quiz will determine the level of a learner’s current skills in English and maths. The results will show as one of the following:

The table shows the comparable GCSE grade for each level of Functional Skills:

Functional Skills Level Comparable GCSE Grade
Entry Level 3 Below GCSE level
Level 1 3 – 1
Level 2 9 – 4

After the learner takes the initial assessment, our innovative online Functional Skills solution, High Achieve, diagnoses their learning requirements and provides a personalised programme of learning tailored to each individual’s needs.
