The course

Maths and English skills are essential for gaining employment, that all-important promotion or going onto higher education. It is now very common for employers to ask for these qualifications either GCSE Grade 4 or above or the equivalent of a Pass grade at Level 2 Functional Skills.

We have designed Level 2 Functional Skills courses to develop your skills in a practical and accessible way to support your future development. These courses are delivered at times that fit around existing work commitments for a short 12 week period, meaning you can gain the essential qualifications whilst continuing to work.

Functional Skills English allows a greater understanding of communication: reading, writing, speaking and listening elements of language will be demonstrated and developed through this course.

This is an online course but you will be required to come onto campus to complete your end of the course assessments.
