Functional Skills Literacy (English)

Good literacy skills are essential for the modern workplace and employers are increasingly looking for employees who are literate and can prove this with a relevant and up-to-date qualification.

Course Overview:

Good literacy skills are essential for the modern workplace and employers are increasingly looking for employees who are literate and can prove this with a relevant and up-to-date qualification.

English Functional Skills provides essential communication skills, knowledge and understanding to enable students to function confidently and effectively at work and in their everyday life. English Functional Skills are, therefore, about developing your ability to communicate effectively through speaking and listening, reading and writing which is then transferable to other areas of learning, life and work. This would include things like speaking and listening, reading and writing.

We can offer you a nationally recognised certificate at a course level that is right for you, instilling the skills that will enable you to gain the confidence and ability to use English both at work and at home.
