Overview

This course is designed to assess your current working level of English and help you progress from that level forward. You will work through a range of smaller stepping stone units to help grow your confidence with reading, writing, speaking and listening. This will then give you the opportunity to work up the levels from Entry 3 to Level 2. You will be required to come in for an initial assessment before you can enrol on this course.

This course is for you if you do not already have a grade C/4 or above in GCSE English Language. If you have already achieved Level 2 Functional Skills in English it is suggested that you progress to a GCSE English Language Course.
