Introduction to Functional Skills in Warrington
Functional skills level 2 qualifications are now a requirement for most employers and University courses, and are equivalent to GCSEs. Level 2 in maths and English is comparable to a GCSE grade C, and can improve job prospects and enable University applications. Unlike GCSEs, functional skills exams are available year-round, and the results are usually quicker. They cover less content, making them more accessible to adult learners who have other responsibilities like work and childcare.
Level 2 Courses
Numerous colleges allow you to enrol onto a functional skills course in their centre. It is common for learners take the functional skills level 2 exams in conjunction with other access courses and qualifications. There are other distance learning options available where you can sit the course from home. This is often a much better option 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 Warrington or make arrangements for them to complete the courses from home.
