organisational features

FE: E3.12 Understand organisational features and use them to locate relevant information (e.g. contents, index, menus, tabs and links)

Those visual aspects of text that give a clue to its status and its relation to other pieces of text. Such features include: contents pages, chapter headings and other sub-headings, bullet-point lists, captions to photographs and illustrations, text presented in special display boxes, tables, footnotes, indexes, etc.

As defined in the glossary of: Subject content functional skills: English. DfE (Feb 2018)

A set of Entry 1 and Entry 2 English tasks that focus on two short texts about the alphabetical list of winter storm names released by the Met Office. The first Functional English resource I have written based on the revised Functional Skills English content (2018) which will be used by awarding organisations from September 2019 [1].
