Course overview

This course is currently full and we will contact you if spaces become available. Alternatively, you could register for one of our other Functional Skills Maths courses.

This course is intended for people who do not already have a Level 2 qualification in English and wish to gain a qualification in English Functional skills.

We offer four levels of English functional skills from Entry 2 through to Level 2. There is opportunity to progress between levels up to Level 2.

Come along and find out more about our English Functional Skills courses from our experienced tutors. When you register your interest on the course, you will be asked to undertake a short online assessment to help us advise you on an appropriate course. If you have certificates for any English qualifications already, bring them with you to the information session. 

This functional skills course is being offered as an online evening course, during school term time only. These courses provide an opportunity to work towards a City and Guilds qualification in Functional Skills English. During the information and advice session, the tutor will explain more about our courses and advise you of options for courses that are appropriate for you.

Please do not register your interest on more than one functional skills English course.
