If you feel you need some extra support in the form of some tutor support or a marked mock you may want to check out our English Level 2 Exam bundle as this package does not include access to a tutor or a marked mock with feedback. That said, let's take a look at what you get...

Functional Skills English can help you develop the practical skills you need to use maths in life, study and work. You’ll develop your maths skills and learn how to use them in real-life situations.

By reaching Level 2, you’ll reach the equivalent to a C or higher grade at GCSE, meaning that you can demonstrate your ability to understand and use everyday English at this level.

This course also includes everything you need at Level 1 so is perfect if you need something to guide you all the way through your journey in developing your maths skills and confidence.

Our English course was written by qualified subject specialists who have years of experience in Further Education.
