Functional Skills in English
Functional Skills in English, Maths and ICT
These qualifications are intended for anyone wishing to develop their English, Mathematics or ICT skills. If you're 19 or over our functional skills courses can help you develop the practical skills in English and maths that you need to live, study and work. You'll learn to apply English and maths skills in real-life situations through reading, writing, speaking and listening tasks.
Functional Skills qualifications are available across five levels (Entry 1 to Level 2), and are completed in a wide range of college, community and work-based settings.
You'll work towards the City & Guilds Award in Functional Skills with us.
This course will suit you if you're a beginner, or want to work towards GCSE or other higher level English qualification or you are in Apprenticeship courses. There are no formal entry requirements, but before you enrol you'll have a short test with one of our tutors to help us decide what level is right for you.
If you've already completed a functional skills course and want to study for the next level, please bring your certificates with you when you come in for your test.
You can take another course at the College alongside functional skills. Remember to check the entry requirements for the other course as well.
When and where can I study?
Courses run at our Woolwich, Barking and Manchester campuses. You can study in the daytime or evening.
On daytime courses you'll study two 2.5 hour sessions a week. Both sessions run at the same time; morning or afternoon. Evening classes are one evening a week for 3 hours. Your class times depend on your assessment level.
Sessions run from Monday to Saturday at these times:
• Mornings : 9:30-12:00
• Afternoons : 13:00-15:30 or 12:30-15:00
• Evening : 18:15-21:15
Your tutor will discuss timetabling options and your study level when you come in to enrol.
What you'll pay
If you don't have a formal qualification in English or maths then you can take this course for free as long as you get a good enough mark on your assessment. On our free courses there are sometimes administrative charges - like the College registration fee - to pay. Find out more when you enrol or by speaking to Student Services.
