English (Functional Skills - Various Levels)

This course is offered at all levels (entry 1, entry level 2, entry level 3, level 1 and level 2). Once enrolled, students are assessed for their starting ability and placed on a level accordingly. These courses are half an academic year so you can progress through two levels a year, or if you only need one, you can be finished by February.

Outline

You will study literacy skills such as spelling, punctuation and grammar, reading comprehension and creative writing

Progression

You can progress to the next functional skills level up to level 2. Once level 2 has been achieved you can study GCSE English or progress to HE courses where level 2 literacy is required (rather than specifiying GCSE).

Assessment

Written exams for reading and writing and a speaking and listening assessment carried out with your teaacher. These do not take place at set times but are carried out within a time frame when your teacher believes you are ready. For those starting in September the exams will be in January and early February. For courses starting in February exams will take place in May and June. Students may have multiple attempts at exams.

Entry Requirements

There is no entry requirement to enrol in the class, but the level to be studied will be based on previous levels achieved and initial diagnostic assessment.
