Functional Skills

We recognise the importance of your Functional Skills qualifications and want to provide you with the best opportunity to achieve these.

Functional skills are relevant and transferable, so once acquired can be applied, not just in the workplace, but to a variety of situations throughout life. They are credible qualifications, valued by employers and universities, with level 2 Functional skills contributing to UCAS tariff points.

You will have allocated sessions that are dedicated for this purpose, so that you can build the necessary skills to assist you with other course work and requirements. These sessions are an integral part of your course and an opportunity to acquire and develop skills that will contribute to your future success.

Skills Advisers are available in your Functional Skills sessions to support your progression and development. If you feel you would benefit from individual support, then please come and speak to them or your course tutor(s).
