Online Functional Skills
Functional Skills give you the opportunity to demonstrate real-life English and Maths skills and achieve a qualification as an alternative route to GCSEs.
For learners without English / Maths GCSEs, Level 2 Functional Skills qualifications can be used to meet many degree entry requirements and the requirements of an Advanced Level Apprenticeship. Level 1 Functional Skills qualifications can be used to meet the requirements of an Intermediate Level Apprenticeship and to prepare learners for progression to Level 2 study.
We offer fully online Functional Skills with Open Awards. These courses are studied entirely online with one-to-one tutor support to develop your skills and prepare you for the Functional Skills assessments. You will complete all assessments online, meaning that you don't need to arrange your Functional Skills assessments yourself.
All assessments are externally set and marked by our awarding body, Open Awards.
On the courses:
You will gain access to our high quality and skills-focused learning materials that will teach you to develop the skills needed to pass the Functional Skills assessments.
Your one-to-one subject specialist tutor will support you in your learning by actively contacting you throughout your studies through regular phone/Skype tutorials and emails.
We have been teaching via distance learning for over 25 years, and we know what works: we are proactive in the support that we offer learners because it helps you to succeed.
