EAL is improving its Functional Skills paper based processes and has made some amendments to the current procedure:
EAL has removed the requirement to claim the SLC component for both Level 1 and Level 2 Functional Skills English qualifications.
Submission of a completed record of candidate achievement is now the only requirement in order to claim the SLC component.
EAL has added two new tools to Functional Skills Maths exams at Level 2: the diagram and graph creators.
It is advised that Centres familiarise themselves with the graph tutorial before the exam. This can be done by scheduling the graph tutorial exam online.
Please be aware that EAL is launching revised Functional Skills Level 2 papers for English and Maths on the 20th June 2015.
These exams provide an improved user experience and a greater level of feedback on candidate performance.
It is advised that Centres run a practice exam to familiarise their candidates on these new features before attempting the new exams.
There will be no disruption to exam availability.
Please be aware that we have altered the process for changing Centre details on Smarter Touch where you will not be able to change the organisation name or certificate name. You will now be required to create a ‘Change Centre details’ form via Smarter Touch.
This form has been added to all Centre staff that have super user access in Smarter Touch and can be found under ‘Start a new...’ on the home page of Smarter Touch.
If you have any questions with regard to this, please contact our Customer Services Team on 01923 652400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
