Home Page


to skillsworkshop, the home of free adult literacy, numeracy and Functional Skills resources since 2001.

The site was redeveloped in 2011 and had a major upgrade in September 2018 to reflect the Reformed Functional Skills that took effect the following year. New items are added regularly and there are now more than 2300 free Functional Skills and Skills for Life resources.

The about pages describe the history of the site, the benefits of registration, and explain how you can contribute.
