This course is aimed Level 1 and Level 2 learners.
It is intended for people who do not already have a Level 2 qualification in English and wish to gain a qualification in English functional skills.
Our functional skills courses are offered across Telford in community venues. We run morning and afternoon sessions during school term time only. We offer four levels of English functional skills from Entry 2 through to Level 2. There is opportunity to work towards a City and Guilds qualification in Functional Skills English and to progress between levels up to Level 2.
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. You may be offered a course on a different day or at a different level to the one you have registered for.
During the information and advice session, the tutor will explain more about our courses and the options available to you. If you have certificates for any English qualifications already, bring them with you to the information session.
Please do not register your interest on more than one functional skills English course. Our tutors will help you to choose the course which is most appropriate for you at the information session.
This course runs for 18 weeks.
This course will be on Tuesdays 09:15-12:00
Information session 14/2/23
First teaching session 28/2/23
We understand it can be difficult for you to take the first steps and try something new so, on the first day of the course, our friendly tutor will talk to you about the course and offer some useful information and advice.
