Functional Skills are nationally recognised Maths and English qualifications, which will help you develop skills that you can use in your work and your home life. You will learn practical skills which you can actually apply in real life situations unlike some of the skills in GCSE which, let’s be honest, you would probably never use outside of the classroom.
Functional Skills are ideal for learners who do not have a current English or Maths qualification and would like to progress in work or access further education. We offer qualifications from Entry Level 1 right up to Level 2. Functional Skills at Level 2 is equivalent to a GCSE at Grade A-C and can often be used to enable learners to access higher education courses.
Gaining these qualifications will also boost your confidence, enhance your CV and give you those transferable skills which you will actually use in the workplace to help you do your job better – and maybe even gain a promotion. They will help with your communication skills and personal budgets and may even help you get a better deal when you’re shopping!
Our courses are online, so you do not have to go to a college or learning centre during the day or in the evening. You can do it from the comfort of your own home at a time and pace which suits you. All our resources are available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week so you can fit it in around your work and busy home life and then travel to one of our centres to sit your final exam when you’re ready.
We have helped thousands of learners gain this qualification and we have had learners from 16 to 72, so it’s never too early or late to learn!
