Overview

Functional Skills English qualifications are designed to equip learners with the skills they need to operate confidently, effectively and independently in education, work and everyday life.

Functional Skills assessments will be taken at specific points in the year and you can re-sit assessments up to a maximum of three times in an academic year. For English, there are three assessments for each level, involving reading, writing and speaking & listening. Once you have achieved one level, you will be encouraged to work towards the level above.

n addition to the classes, you will be expected to complete ‘prep’ and homework tasks to practice what you have learnt in the sessions, prepare for the next sessions and to be ready for your exams.

You need to:

  • Be committed to learning and making progress
  • Be able to commit to a least 1hour work outside of class and to catch up with any work missed
  • Be able to achieve 100% attendance
  • Be punctual and prepared for learning
