L2 Apprentices required to study towards L2 functional skill


I am after some advice

Intermediate apprentices are required to study towards and attempt the functional skills assessments at level 2. Do they need to have attempted all 3 exams in  English before they are ready for Gateway given that it is not a requirement for the L2 apprenticeship?


No one has replied to this post.

Someone else asked this question recently and Steve’s or Martins response was yes.


Yes. Confirmed numerous times by ESFA over the last five years that they have to attempt ALL the L2 English elements before they go to Gateway.

thanks for confirming

Does anyone know in which document or site that this requirement is confirmed?
