If you are off to university or college in September this year and your place requires English or Maths functional skills level 2, you need to be enrolling on a course as soon as possible.

Don’t leave it too late or you may lose your place. Last enrolments this year at our training centres in Winton & Weymouth will be mid-May as all courses have to be completed by the end of the academic year July 31st 2018.

There will not be another opportunity to enroll until August 1st 2018 however this will be too late to achieve the qualification in time

The length of the courses will vary depending on which level you begin with and how long it will take you to absorb the material. We estimate that each level (EL3, Level 1 & 2) will last for an average of two to three weeks. You will need to attend the centre daily apart from weekends to achieve the learning required to pass the qualification within this time. Exams results can take up to 21 days so this needs to be considered if a resit is required.

This course is set up as individual online learning. This would require you to be independent up to a certain level and have the appropriate IT skills to work the programme. However, you shall have a highly qualified and skilled tutor to assist your throughout your whole programme. They shall track your progress and offer you support through session plans, individual sessions, mini tests and assignments as well as any additional learning material that they may feel you require in accordance with any difficulties that you may face.


At the end of your course you shall obtain a Functional Skills English or Maths certificate from City and Guilds which is recognised and valued as a GCSE equivalent qualification.

Eligibility: In order for you to qualify for the government funding you must be 19 years old or older*

This course is government funded, therefore the whole programme, including the certificate, would be free, subject to the requirements*
