Functional Skills – New forms
For the security of candidate details under GDPR, we request that for all candidate detail changes, transfers or duplicate certificate requests are made via an Enquiry Form on Centres Hub**. For those involving functional skills please additionally complete the relevant form on the Hub and attach it to an Enquiry form. This will enable us make the necessary changes to both the IMI systems and for SkillsFirst.
**These forms can be found on the home Page of the Centre’s Hub under Key the IMI Documents >> Functional Skills Forms.

Please do not allow the candidate to do any functional skills online tests until the Centre has been notified that the change has/changes have been processed in order to prevent an incorrect certificate being issued.
