Introduction to Functional Skills in Coventry
If you are in need of a GCSE alternative, the Functional Skills Level 2 qualification is perfect! This Ofqual-approved qualification is equivalent to a GCSE Pass/Grade C/Level 4, and it will enable you to apply to a range of job roles, University courses, and apprenticeships. It can even help those that want to apply to Policing, Nursing, and Teaching courses.
The Functional Skills Level 2 qualifications can be easily adapted into your everyday life; unlike the GCSE examinations, Functional Skills exams take place all year round. Additionally, the content list for the Functional Skills exams is significantly less than the GCSE list. Generally, students find this makes revision easier as you can make the most of your time.
