These qualifications are offered at various levels, teaching anything from the very basics to more advanced skills.  Our classes offer you the opportunity to work on the skills that you need.  Your tutor will support you with the preparation for taking the Functional Skills accreditation at the right level for you.

Students work within small adult groups, individually or in pairs.

You will need to attend an interview with a member of our admissions team. An initial assessment will tell you what skills you have already. A diagnostic assessment will show you which skills you need to work on.
