Introduction to Functional Skills in Luton
Many students seek to obtain their Functional Skills Level 2 qualification as an alternative to the GCSE qualifications. The Maths and English Functional Skills Level 2 qualifications are equivalent to a GCSE Grade C/Level 4, with several Universities, apprenticeships, and employees across the UK accepting them. These qualifications are essential if you want to gain access to different courses or improve your employability.
The Functional Skills qualifications slightly differ from the GCSEs. The content list contains significantly less for Functional Skills; for learners with other commitments, the course is more manageable and allows for extra flexibility. Additionally, the GCSE examinations occur twice a year, whereas the Functional Skills exam can be taken all year round, and generally, the turnaround time for results is faster.
Level 2 Courses
Numerous colleges in and around Luton allow you to enroll on a Functional Skills course in addition to their other qualification and courses. We understand that in-person courses are not viable for some or may not be everyone’s preferred method – which is why distance learning options are available too. The distance learnings allow you to take the course from the comfort of your own home. Mature students have found this option useful, as it is flexible to each individual schedule and easy to incorporate alongside other commitments.
