Modules

Functional Skills English looks at the following modules

  • 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 – The speaking, listening and communication (SLC) element of English functional skills is one of the most useful and fun areas to strengthen. This module helps you prepare for the SLC exam 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 as well making you exam ready.

 

 

Functional Skills maths is based on the following modules:

  • Using numbers – This section covers everything from whole numbers to decimals, fractions and percentages. You’ll look at how to solve real problems using these skills, including making decisions about purchases, using ratios in recipes and in work or working out whether your bills are correct. All of the number skills you look at will be tested by quizzes at the end of each section.
  • Understanding measure, shape and space – This section contains a wide range of topics from area and distance to time, speed and temperature. You’ll look at how to solve problems involving time to plan your day-to-day or work life, and how to use your understanding of shape and area to do anything from read a map to plan a house renovation. Our quizzes will check that you’re able to use these skills in different situations.
  • Handling data – This section looks at working with information. You’ll look at how to summarise and present information that you’ve found, and how to understand information that other people are sharing with you. You’ll also look at probability and how likely certain things are to happen. You’ll learn how to spot patterns and see how even data and statistics can be biased. 

Requirements

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

Assessment

Throughout your learning you can track your progress through taking our online quizzes. Following your 1:1 tutorials you’ll gauge when you are nearly exam ready. At this time you can choose to do one marked mock for English and another for maths. Your tutor will mark each, give you detailed feedback and if appropriate highlight further areas for you to strengthen. Once you are happy you can then buy an exam from us later. If you would like an exam included then look at one of our value packages where you get learning materials, tutoring and an exam all for one great price.

Qualifications

Once you’ve completed this course, you’ll have worked on all the skills you need for a Level 2 Functional Skills English and/or maths 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. After sitting and passing an exam, you’ll have gained a Functional Skills Level 2 qualification in English and/or maths. This is equivalent to a grade C or above (4 or above) at GCSE. It will enable you to go on to further education programmes and can also give you access to some universities.
