Course overview

This accredited course provides an opportunity to work towards a City and Guilds’ advanced level qualification in Functional Skills.

Come along and find out more about our English Functional Skills courses from our experienced tutors. You will be asked to undertake a short skills assessment to help us advise you on an appropriate course. If you have certificates for any English qualifications already, bring them with you to the information session.

This course is aimed at Advanced Level learners who already have basic English speaking, writing and reading skills and are working towards level 1 or 2 or progressing from our entry level functional skills courses.

Our functional skills courses are offered across Telford in community venues. We run morning and afternoon sessions during school term time only. Courses are offered at different levels and are intended to provide an opportunity to work towards a City and Guilds qualification in Functional Skills English. During the information and advice session, the tutor will explain more about our courses and advise you of options for courses that are appropriate for you..

Please do not register your interest on more than one functional skills English course.
