Functional Skills Maths and English are fundamental skills that people need for their working and personal lives. During each two-hour session, you will develop your English or Maths and learn essential transferable skills such as communication, team working, presentation and problem-solving.

Our Functional Skills course enables you to work at the level that best suits you, from Entry levels 1-3 to Levels 1 and 2, and take an exam when you are confident to do so. Courses will be delivered online, although some face-to-face teaching can also be arranged to meet individual needs including some 1-1 tailored sessions if needed.

By the end of this course you should be able to... apply mathematical thinking to solve simple problems and communicate effectively in familiar situations and in the workplace. You will also have developed transferable skills through working with others.

"I had a great time learning on the Functional Skills course, it was tailored to us as a class and individually, the teacher was invested in our learning and made what could be dry, interesting. I'm glad I did it as it's made me enjoy maths in particular."
