Supporting the Delivery of Functional Skills with i-GVS

Functional skills underpin learning and help students deepen their understanding of a subject. We have adopted an integrated approach to learning and built functional skills into the i-GVS solution. Throughout the i-GVS modules, functional skills are presented and taught in an engaging, realistic context and linked to real-world problem-solving and action. This helps enhance the development of vital knowledge and skills, enabling learners to operate with greater efficiency and competitiveness in the industry of their choice.
