About

These free courses are available across all our campuses and within the workplace or community settings. The courses start throughout the year and you can choose to study for 3 hours a week or to complete an intensive 6-week block of one full day per week. Each learner is assessed and interviewed to understand their needs and how we can support them through the qualification. Your course could be taught online or in the classroom with support from your lecturer. The Functional Skills exams have been developed with practical everyday work skills in mind and cover 5 levels recognised in the workplace.

Classes can also be delivered by dual teaching methods where students for whom English is not their first language will get support from a language expert, to help them achieve. Tutors are engaging, highly skilled and adept at nurturing adult learners with complex barriers to learning.  Our courses are designed to work with employers, training providers and JCP centres and they support employment, CPD, further education or obtaining a promotion.
