Introduction to Functional Skills in Wolverhampton
The Functional Skills Level 2 Maths and English qualifications are equivalent to a GCSE Grade C/Level 4. If you did not achieve a passing grade at GCSE, these qualifications might be required by employers and Universities. Functional Skills Level 2 qualifications are Ofqual approved and can get you access to several courses and apprenticeships, including Policing, Teaching, and Nursing. Unlike the GCSEs, you can sit the exam at any point in the year. This means you can meet job and university application deadlines with ease. Additionally, the result turnaround for Functional SKills is generally faster than GCSE.
Level 2 Courses
In Wolverhampton, there are several colleges that offer courses for these qualifications. If in-person courses are not for you, there are distance learning options too! This option allows you to sit the course from your own home; many mature learners find distance learning easier to fit around their other commitments. A number of our students take their Functional Skills courses in conjunction with their other courses and qualifications.
At Pass Functional Skills, we can help learners access these courses and find colleges near them that offer these qualifications. Furthermore, we can help them organize taking the course from home if they prefer that option.
