Skills for Further Study

Skills for Further Study courses are aimed at students who are ready to work at Level 2 and can help further develop the skills needed for life, work and study. They can also provide some of the essential skills suitable for learners who wish to progress on to courses at Level 3 (particularly our Access to Higher Education Diploma) and possibly higher education after that. Tutors at Fircroft College use a variety of materials relevant to each subject in order for you to apply the skills you learn and to make the learning interesting and enjoyable. 

If you are just setting out on your learning journey, then you may want to start off with our Gateway Course, or Functional Skills English, Maths or ICT courses instead.
