Why study this course?

Many adults looking to progress, academically or professionally, are now required to have a Level 2 qualification in English, and Functional Skills are widely recognised by employers and institutions as a suitable alternative to the GCSE. In fact, employers were involved in the design of the reformed Functional Skills in order to address gaps in skills and knowledge needed for the workplace.

We provide a course that is flexible and suits the demands of adult learners seeking to improve their English skills: for their own personal development, for employment reasons or to progress into further/higher education.

Learners who join in January will have two exam opportunities in the remainder of the academic year.

Please note, this course is delivered via Microsoft Teams, which means you must have access to an appropriate electronic device e.g. laptop, desktop or tablet with access to a microphone and webcam, a strong internet connection, and the Microsoft Teams app. Writing materials and an exercise book/folder will also be needed.
