About your Course

Functional Skills English is a nationally recognised alternative to GCSE English. Whereas the GCSE course focuses heavily on theory and covers a broad range of topics, Functional Skills English is focused on the practical elements.

This will help you to use English day-to-day, helping you to communicate well with others, read and understand text and adapt your writing style to suit your audience.

This can help you with job applications, presentations or writing emails to customers. Or just keeping in touch with friends.

This online course provides you with the Functional Skills English Level 2 course content and the online exam. It does not include tutor support.

This course is suitable for those who already feel they have a good understanding of English and want to gain a qualification.

Upon gaining your Functional Skills Level 2 in English, you'll get a qualification that is the equivalent to a grade C or above at GCSE. This means that you are able to demonstrate your ability to use English at this level.

Getting Started

Our course contains all of the learning material you will need to stand the best chance of passing your exam, all the way up to level 2.

Our English courses have been written by subject specialists so you can be confident that you will gain the skills and knowledge you need to use English effectively.

We know that no two people are the same, by completing our level and skills checkers you can create a programme made just for you, containing all of the areas of English you need and refreshing those you are already good at.

As part of this bundle, you also get your exam. Your exam will be invigilated remotely online so you can take it from the comfort of your own home! They are delivered by our partner Future Skills, a division of learndirect, and accredited by NCFE.

NCFE is an Awarding Organisation approved by Ofqual to provide Functional Skills qualifications. Ofqual is the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation – the regulatory body who regulate qualifications, examinations and assessments in England.
