Do you need English Functional Skills for work or for a further or higher education course? Having this can enhance employability and open doors for further study.

This programme will focus on supporting you to develop your weaker English skills so that you can pass the level of qualification identified in your initial assessment.

You will work in small groups with tutor support during class time, but you will also need to complete homework so please consider this when planning your time. The short delivery model of this course means that it is intense, and homework is essential if you want to pass the course.
Whatever your previous experience of English, we will support you to develop your knowledge and ability, providing you with transferrable skills which will help you at home and at work.

To achieve the qualification, you need to sit and pass two exams. The exams can be taken at different points in the year and you can re-sit up to a maximum of 3 times in an academic year. For English there are 3 exams for each level: Reading, Writing and Speaking & Listening. You will complete mock assessments in each exam before being entered for the final examination.

Entry Requirements

Expectations of the course:

  • Be committed to learning and making progress
  • Be able to commit to a least 3 hours work outside of class and to catch up with any work missed
  • Be able to achieve 100% attendance

All applicants will receive an initial assessment to determine the correct level of functional skill to be working towards.
