There are 5 different Functional Skills English levels available to complete, all with the aim to help individuals develop their confidence surrounding English. The highest level of Functional Skills English is Level 2 which is equivalent to a GCSE grade C/ 4.
We have a number of different delivery options available for learners to choose from. No matter the delivery option you choose, you will receive a number of resources which have been adopted from our awarding bodies as well as a number of practice exams for you to complete. In order to gain a Functional Skills English qualification, you are required to complete and pass a reading exam, a writing exam and a speaking and listening assessment. For the Entry Level qualifications, learners will also need to pass a spelling test. Functional Skills UK is a training provider for both NCFE and Pearson Edexcel awarding bodies. Once you have passed the exams, you will receive a certificate from the awarding body as proof of the new skills you have learnt!
