Functional Skills

We offer nationally recognised Functional Skills qualifications in English and Maths

Functional Skills qualifications are nationally recognised and we are pleased to offer adult learners a Level 2 Functional Skills in English and a Level 2 Functional Skills in mathematics.

Functional Skills are programmes of learning that explore real-life practical application of English or maths.

These courses allow learners to gain a qualification that is recognised by employers while at the same time, to develop transferable skills that are needed in every workplace.

The Functional Skills in English course will assess communication skills – reading, writing, speaking and listening.

The Functional Skills in Maths will assess skills in problem solving, analysing, applying mathematical concepts, and interpreting results.

Level 2 Functional Skills qualifications are equivalent to a GCSE Grade C – A (4 – 9) and learning is tested by doing timed assessments that are marked and graded externally.
