Functional Skills are practical skills in English, maths and information and communications technology (ICT). They are a new set of qualifications available to all learners aged 14 +. Functional Skills are not just about knowledge in English, maths and ICT. They are also about knowing when and how to use the knowledge in real life situations.

Functional Skills involve taking separate tests which will give you a qualification if you pass them. They will also count towards other qualifications, including Diplomas and Apprenticeships and will be widely available in England in schools, colleges, training providers and the workplace.

How do I qualify to Teach Skills for Life / Functional Skills?

New qualification requirements were introduced in 2007 with regards to teaching in the lifelong learning sector (LLLS). There are 2 teaching roles, defined as associate teaching and full teaching role - the qualification route required depends on your teaching role.The associate role is described as having fewer teaching responsibilities than a full teaching role. All teachers of literacy, numeracy or ESOL are defined as having a full teaching role.

New teachers now need to undertake an introductory programme to give them a threshold licence to teach. This is an accredited Level 3 or 4 Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) which will equip them with the minimum skills / knowledge required to start teaching.

For most people working towards a full teaching qualification, this will form the first part of their initial teacher training programme.This introductory programme may be a separate award, or may be integrated into the larger teacher training programme. If awarded separately, it leads to the Award in Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) at Level 3 or 4 on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF).

These qualifications cover the PTTLS requirements as part of the course: Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS) PGCE or Certificate in Education.

For Skills for Life teachers there will be three routes to becoming fully qualified for both a full teaching role and in their subject specialism:

An integrated subject specific programme - which will cover both full teaching and subject specific requirements

A generic Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (DTLLS) and a subject specific diploma

A subject specific diploma for teachers of literacy, numeracy or ESOL (for those already holding a generic teaching qualification)

Which route you choose will depend on your existing experience and qualifications.

For Existing teachers, if you have been working as a Skills for Life teacher since before 2001, then you remain exempt from the 2001 teacher qualifications regulations and there is no requirement for you to gain Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS) status. However you are encouraged to achieve PTLLS and/or DTLLS or to apply to a professional recognition scheme. You will need to register with the Institute for Learning for CPD purposes.

For an associate teaching role the qualification for the associate teaching role is the Level 3 / 4 Certificate in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (CTLLS). These programmes include the PTLLS at the start of the course and are suitable for teachers with fewer responsibilities than those in a full teaching role.
