Functional Skills English includes sections on:

  • Reading – This module looks at reading for information, including looking at biased pieces of work and will help you to work out how much the opinions of certain authors can be trusted. It also looks at the different types of layout features and how these can impact the reader. All of the reading skills that you will look at will be tested in quizzes at the end of each section, ensuring that you are ready to sit your final exam.
  • Writing – This module looks at the best way to write certain pieces. This may include letters, newspaper articles, emails and blogs amongst others. This area will also test your spelling, punctuation and grammar skills, ensuring that you are ready to sit your final exam. 
  • Speaking, Listening and Communication – An important element of the English programme is the speaking, listening and communication (SLC) module. This module will help to prepare you for your own SLC exam by showing you the best ways to prepare and also giving you examples of the correct way to use various SLC skills on a daily basis. 

Great news! There are no entry requirements for the course. All you need is access to a computer or tablet and an internet connection.
