Example – Learner has level 3 English and Maths. They are doing an apprenticeship. Do they still need to do a functional skills assessment? There is evidence of the maths and English. The evidence is stored under prior learning.
In addition, if you had a degree qualified apprentice – with evidence of the degree – would you still get them to do a basic skills assessment (BKSB for example) as part of the initial assessment? The apprenticeship is the right one for them in terms of careers aspirations.
