Modules

Functional Skills Level 2 English consists of the following units:

  • Reading – This Functional Skills Level 2 English 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, followed by a tutor-marked assignment.
  • Writing – This Functional Skills Level 2 English 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.  At the end of your learning are quizzes and tutor-marked assignments.
  • Speaking, Listening and Communication – The speaking, listening and communication (SLC) element of English functional skills is one of the most useful and fun areas to strengthen. This Functional Skills Level 2 English module helps you prepare for the SLC assessment by showing you examples of the best ways to tackle everyday situations at home and in the workplace. These will help build your confidence and effectiveness in these scenarios. This section is finalised with our quizzes and a tutor-marked assignment.

Once you’ve passed all tutor-marked assignments you will be ready to take your mock exam.  The mock exam is marked by your tutor and feedback and any recommended revision areas are given.

*You will have access to the course for 12 months.

During your Functional Skills English Level 2 course you will be assessed throughout your learning by our online quizzes.

Once you’ve completed this course, you’ll have worked on all the skills you need for a Level 2 Functional Skills English exam. If you decide to sit an exam, you’ll need to arrange this with us and buy this separately at a later date if you don't want to buy it now.

It will enable you to go on to further education programmes and can also give you access to some universities. If you are looking to progress and are missing that C grade then this is the programme for you.

Functional Skills courses were devised by the UK Government to help improve the literary, numeracy and Information Communication Technology (ICT) skills of people in the UK. As a direct equivalent to GCSE grade C/4, completing Functional Skills Level 2 courses can help you meet job and university entry requirements that require a passing grade in these subjects.

As such, this Functional Skills English Level 2 course will help you develop skills and knowledge to overcome everyday challenges.

By boosting your literacy skills, you will be able to put your thoughts into words effectively and communicate with people clearly in person and across a myriad of platforms.
