Why learn about time and date?

Time and date are non-decimal systems. Careful with adding hours and minutes.

Quick tips for tutors

Time and date includes:
  • Knowing facts about time and dates.
  • Spelling time and date words.
  • Reading, measuring and recording time and dates in different formats and using different instruments.
  • Ordering and comparing dates and times.
  • Using timetables.
  • Converting between hours and minutes and calculating time.


What do the levels mean?

Skillswise uses the levels of the National Qualifications Framework, which start at Entry 1, 2 and 3 and then go on to Level 1 and Level 2.

  • Entry 3 covers the basic concepts and is a good preparation for starting a Level 1 course.
  • Level 1 is roughly equivalent to a GCSE D-G grade in England, Northern Ireland and Wales, and a Foundation level at Standard Grade in Scotland.
