Introduction to Functional Skills in Cambridge
Employers and universities may require the functional skills level 2 maths and English qualifications as they are equivalent to a GCSE grade C. If you did not achieve a passing grade in GCSE, these approved Ofqual qualifications can provide access to various courses and apprenticeships, such as policing, teaching, and nursing. Unlike GCSEs, you can take the exam at any time during the year, making it easier to meet job and university application deadlines. Functional skills results typically have a faster turnaround than GCSEs.
Level 2 Courses
Cambridge has numerous colleges that provide courses for functional skills qualifications. For those who prefer not to attend in-person classes, there are also distance learning alternatives available. This approach allows you to study the course from the comfort of your own home, making it more manageable for many mature learners to balance with their other commitments. Some of our pupils choose to take functional skills courses simultaneously with their other educational courses and certifications. At Pass Functional Skills, we aid students in locating nearby colleges that offer these qualifications and gaining access to these courses. Additionally, if they prefer to study from home, we can assist them in arranging to do so.
