Functional Skills are essential for success in any form of future study, qualifications and work opportunities. As a recognised alternative to GCSE qualifications, Functional Skills courses were created to offer you the most convenient solution to learn and develop practical skills in the essential subjects of maths and English.

To help you make the most out of this course, you will also have mock exam papers that your tutor will check and offer feedback on, in order to prepare you for your Functional Skills Level 2 online exams.
