We are a training provider and have an apprentice who will need to sit a Functional Skills exam to obtain a qualification to pass gateway. This will involve us paying the awarding body the exam fee. We do not otherwise use subcontractors: would this count as subcontracting? I assume not as it doesn't involve handing over any training responsibility.

You are correct, Awarding Orgs don't count as sub-contractors.

It would only be subcontracting if a third party was delivering the FS. As Steve says this is not subbing.
It's no different to registering a learner for any other exam.
