This course prepares ESOL learners for a nationally recognised Functional Skills English qualification at Level 1 or Level 2. Functional Skills courses aim to give learners the skills to apply their knowledge, skills and understanding in order to participate and progress in everyday life, education, training and employment in the UK.
The skills of speaking, listening and communication; reading and writing will be continually assessed through ‘real life’ task based activities with students being entered for either the Level 1 or Level 2 exam only after a minimum of 1 year (2 x 18 week terms) and if the tutor feels learners are sufficiently prepared to achieve a successful outcome. In order to be entered for exams, language must be fit for purpose and audience with accurate grammar and, for written tasks, accurate spelling and punctuation.
