Introduction to Functional Skills in Reading

The Functional Skills Level 1 qualifications are Ofqual approved and equivalent to a GCSE Grade C/Level 4/Pass. Across the UK, the majority of universities and companies will accept this GCSE alternative. Additionally, the qualification allows you to apply to a range of jobs and higher education – enabling you to achieve your carer and educational goals.

Unlike the GCSE examinations, Functional Skills exams take place all year round. This means your educational or job progression will not be restricted. Moreover, the Functional Skills content list contains less subject matter, allowing you to learn and revise each topic thoroughly in preparation for your exams.

There are a number of jobs and courses that you can apply for with Functional Skills Level 2 qualification; this includes Policing, Nursing, and Teaching.

Level 2 Courses

In Reading and the surrounding area, you can enroll onto a Functional Skills Level 2 course through a college; many students take this qualification alongside other courses. We recognize that in-person courses are not for everyone, and some learners may have other responsibilities – which is why we provide distance learning courses too. This allows you to work from home and offers you the flexibility of going through the courses at your own pace. Several students find this option effective as they can incorporate their learning easily into their day-to-day routine.

All the Functional Skills qualifications are Ofqual approved and can be used to gain entry into several universities and apprenticeships in the UK.
