About this Qualification

Functional Skills English are free standing qualifications designed to give learners the skills to operate confidently, effectively and independently in education, work and everyday life. They have been created in response to employers’ recommendations that learners would benefit from a thorough grounding in the basics and the ability to problem-solve. PRIT functional skills qualifications are available in English, mathematics and ICT at Entry Level 1, 2, 3 and levels 1 and 2. They assess the functional skills standards, coverage and range.

Delivery
The course may be delivered using a variety of methods such as classroom sessions, distance learning or a blended
method. The course will require self-directed study alongside tutor support.

Learners can achieve components at any level; however the qualification is awarded at the level of the lowest component achieved.
