Level 1 Functional Skills – English For Adults

Course Details

Entry Requirements

There are no prior learning requirements.


This is often a student’s first formal qualification in English, a functional skills course that provides practical skills for the modern world and enables learners to get more from life. This course will suit learners from a wide range of abilities and is a recognised qualification for employment, training, education and also currently forms part of the Apprenticeship framework.

Learning will focus on the development of reading, writing, speaking and listening skills from Entry Level 1 to Level 2.


Assessment is by examination of reading and writing skills, plus presentation skills for speaking and listening.


A functional skills qualification will enable you to acquire good levels of skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening that will apply to everyday life. Learners can progress up to Level 2.

Entry into further training or employment will be much easier with a functional skills qualification. Levels 1 and 2 can be used to complete Apprenticeships.


No textbooks are required. A folder, pens and paper will be needed for each class.
