Functional Skills - Maths and English
We offer Entry Level 1 through to Level 2 (GCSE equivalent) qualifications through Open Awards.
This programme can be studied as a combined maths and English programme, or as single subject only. Learners develop maths and English skills that are relevant and useful in everyday life and the world of work. There are a multitude of practical activities that students can take part in (planned around their strengths and interests) which develop these functional skills.
