Introduction to Functional Skills in Leicester
The Functional Skills Level 2 qualification is Ofqual approved and equivalent to a GCSE Level 4/Grade C, meaning that it is perfect for those who did not achieve a passing grade in their Maths or English GCSE. It may even be necessary for those who did not achieve a GCSE Pass to have a Functional Skills Level 2 qualification when applying to Universities or job roles. In comparison to GCSEs, you can obtain your Functional Skills qualification at any point in the year, and the turn-around for results is generally quicker. Furthermore, the Functional Skills have a reduced content list, which means that revision is more manageable, especially for learners with additional commitments.
