Introduction to Functional Skills in London
The functional skills level 2 qualifications are GCSE equivalents that are now required by the vast majority of employers and all University courses. The maths and English level 2 are equivalent to a GCSE grade C and enable you to apply to University as well as improve employment opportunities.Unlike the GCSE, the functional skills exams can be taken all year round and generally the results are returned much faster. Additionally there is significantly less content to cover for the functional skills which makes them much more accessible to adult learners who are often balancing other commitments such as work and childcare.
Level 2 Courses
You can enrol onto a functional course in London through the numerous colleges that offer these qualifications. Often learners take the functional skills level 2 exams alongside other access courses and qualifications. In addition to attending college there are other distance learning options where you can sit the course from home. This is often much more convenient for adult learners especially if they have other commitments such as work or children. At Pass Functional Skills we help learners to find functional skills level 2 courses in London or make arrangements for them to undertake the courses from home.
