Functional Skills services

AlphaPlus can help you design and manage your Functional Skills qualifications programme

We provide this service to a number of major AOs active in the market, and have well-established and proven processes for each of the following:

  • Designing specifications and sample assessments for the new Functional Skills Assessments (for September 2019)
  • Writing series of assessment papers for accreditation and live use (all subjects, all levels)
  • Providing marker training, marking and standard setting services
  • Providing subject experts to review material developed by the AO
  • Providing advice and support for on-screen testing of Functional Skills
  • Supporting AOs in the accreditation process with documentation preparation

Our support packages are tailored to meet your specific requirements (i.e. you can pick and choose from the services listed above). AOs often find considerable difficulty and expense in producing Functional Skills papers. AlphaPlus offers a range of services to help AOs with managing their Functional Skills offer. Our charges are all fixed in advance of the work, and are often less costly for AOs than developing internal capacity.
