SLC Assessment Dates
We ask that any centre delivering Functional Skills English now advise us of the dates they intend to carry out the SLC component and record this in the notes section of the IMI Centres Hub for external quality assurance purposes.
Functional Skills ICT Invigilation Guidance
Centres delivering Functional Skills ICT examinations must ensure that all centre personnel are aware of and actively adhering to the published Functional Skills ICT Invigilation Guidance.
In particular, invigilators must ensure that learners work/evidence is saved to a secure location or device for a minimum period of six months after the exam has taken place and is deleted from the computer where the exam was sat. The storage location must not be accessible to other learners who are registered for FS ICT qualifications.
Some ICT exams require learners to complete a task using an email account and it is strongly recommended to create "dummy" email accounts for learners to use during this task. For example, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org these should be prepared and ready for use prior to the start of the exam.
Please refer to the guidance document for the full ICT requirements.
