Functional Skills courses were devised by the UK Government to help improve the literary, numeracy, and information and communication technology (ICT) skills of people in the UK. As a direct equivalent to GCSE grade C/4, completing Functional Skills Level 2 courses can help you meet job and university entry requirements that require a passing grade in these subjects.

All academic forms of study recognize English and math as core subjects, essential for comprehension. Not only that, but both numeracy and literary skills are required for the successful navigation of day-to-day life.

As a result, this Functional Skills English Level 2 course will assist you in developing the skills and knowledge necessary to overcome everyday challenges.

By boosting your literacy skills, you will be able to put your thoughts into words effectively and communicate with people clearly in person and across a myriad of platforms. You will also have evidence of these capabilities in your qualifications, which will help you meet the needs of employers in multiple sectors.

Universities widely use Functional Skills Level 2 qualifications to meet their entry requirements, but not all universities accept them. In this instance, you need to check if your Functional Skills Level 2 qualifications will be accepted before enrolling.
