Functional Skills English courses give you the essential skills needed for everyday life, work and education. They can build your practical knowledge as well as helping you to gain Functional Skills qualifications.

You will have the opportunity to discuss the possibility of taking the full Functional Skills qualification once you have completed the courses at the corresponding level.

How much does it cost?

These courses are FREE of charge for all learners, for more details go to our fee information page.

How can I apply?
