A flexibility that suspends the requirement for level 2 apprentices to study towards and sit a level 2 functional skills assessment has been extended again.

 

The Education and Skills Funding Agency announced the funding rule would remain suspended until 31 July 2021.
The agency said this “recognises the continued disruption to the apprenticeship programme due to coronavirus”.
  • Level 2 apprentices will still need a level 1 in functional skills English and maths to complete their apprenticeship
  • A level 2 apprentice will still require a level 1 in English and maths to complete their apprenticeship.

 

The temporary suspension applies to both apprenticeship standards and frameworks.
