Open College Network West Midlands Centres: Lifetime learning for all

Functional Skills

Open College Network West Midlands is working in partnership with Industry Qualifications (IQ) to offer Functional Skills qualifications in English, Mathematics and ICT. 
Functional Skills are free standing qualifications designed to give learners the skills to operate confidently, effectively and independently in education, work and everyday life. They have been created in response to employers’ recommendations that learners would benefit from a thorough grounding in the basics and the ability to problem-solve.
IQ Functional Skills qualifications are available in English, Mathematics and ICT at Entry Level 1, 2, 3 and Levels 1 and 2.
Follow the links below to the qualification guides.


The above English and Mathematics qualifications will close for registrations on 31.08.19. The assessments will be available for 12 months.

There are no current changes to the ICT qualifications.
