The information below refers to legacy Functional Skills ICT. All other Functional Skills qualifications have been withdrawn and are no longer available.
The qualification regulators for England, Wales and Northern Ireland published the Functional Skills qualifications criteria in November 2009. The specific criteria for the individual Functional Skills in ICT were published at the same time.
Advice on permitted access arrangements for specific components is given below.
For Functional Skills ICT qualifications candidates can have access to all forms of equipment, software and practical assistance that reflect their normal way of working within the centre. However, such adjustments must not affect the reliability or validity of assessment outcomes or give the candidate an assessment advantage over other candidates undertaking the same or similar assessments.
