What You Get
Functional maths is different to GCSE Maths as it focuses on learning skills that can be transferred into everyday situations. It is not taught through a strict curriculum and you learn subjects in functional maths that you will need to use in the future.
Functional English is based around reading, writing, speaking and listening. It is focused on skills that are transferable for use in college or employment in the future. All the areas that you will cover will help you improve vital communication skills needed for adult life.
Employability & Personal Development
Our course in employability and personal development is all about helping you gain the skills to help you apply for jobs or colleges. It has units based on CV writing, job searches and interview skills. The personal development side of the course includes units on team work and communication skills.
