English Functional Skills Level 1 is the ideal qualification to study if you are wanting to progress onto an apprenticeship or further your prospects at work.

Successful completion of the course will enable you to access a level 2 intermediate apprenticeship or study programme and is the ideal platform for progressing onto English Functional Skills Level 2.

You will study a large proportion of the course online and at your own pace.

When you are prepared, we will book you on to one of our classroom programmes, where you can expect expert tuition, support, guidance and a final assessment.

The course is completely free of charge for anyone who has not completed a level 2 qualification or equivalent in English already.

Course Information

The course will be assessed with two online exams, which will be sat in the centre with an independent invigilator. You will also have to complete a speaking and listening assessment, which will be internally assessed.
