Centre Teacher Assessed Grades (TAG) Guidance for Functional Skills


Further to our recent communications, we are pleased to share the Teacher Assessed Grades (TAG) Guidance for Functional Skills, which outlines the approach Skillsfirst is taking to TAGs for the remainder of the academic year 2020-2021.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that Ofqual's approach to Functional Skills assessments, in line with the directive from the Department for Education, is that all Functional Skills assessments should continue wherever possible, either face-to-face (where it is safe to do so in line with Public Health England guidance) or via remote invigilation. Functional Skills Qualifications will therefore offer a TAG option as a last resort only, for those learners that the centre expected to be entered for assessment between 1 August 2020 and 31 August 2021 only.  

Full guidance and all accompanying documentation can be found here.
