Functional Skills

During the course you will take part in Functional Skills (up to Level 2 in Maths and English) if you have not already gained these or an A*-C/4-9 GCSE equivalent.

Some job roles require maths and English which require the passing of technical tests and our maths and English tutors are on hand to prepare you for these tests.

If you are required to undertake Functional Skills,  you will undertake an initial assessment to ascertain the level you are currently working at.  A development plan will then be put into place with your tutor to support you with your maths and English.

We will teach you everything you need to know for your recruitment and selection process
