Introduction to Functional Skills in Bolton
A brilliant GCSE alternative is the Functional Skills Level 2 qualifications, which are Ofqual-approved and recognized by several Universities and employers across the UK. If you did not achieve a Pass/Level 4/Grade C at GCSE, the Functional Skills qualifications can expand your CV and improve your employability levels. Many people use these qualifications when applying to Policing, Teaching, and Nursing courses.
In comparison to GCSEs, the Functional Skills results generally come back faster, and there is less content to be studied. The reduced content list allows for more focused revision sessions and enables you to manage your time effectively.Book Course
