Amplification Guides

Free Amplification Resources

Our Amplification Guides are perfect for centres that are up-skilling their vocational staff and assessors to support the delivery of Functional Skills and also for subject specialists looking for practical examples of how to explain the application of Functional Skills.

The guides:

  • show how the standards are tested in the Functional Skills questions and their mark schemes using our sample assessments as examples
  • explain how the coverage and range is developed, using the adult core curricula to add detail as to what should be taught for each range statement
  • illustrate the coverage and range with practical examples of how they are used in life and work.

These resources have been developed with support from our centres and their feedback has helped to inform both the structure and the content. We also worked with a number of vocational Assessors and subject specialists who have used these resources to support CPD and the feedback have been very positive.
