Functional Skills English
You can improve your English skills with us at Bowling College.
Whether you want to improve or refresh your skills we have a course for you.
Our English courses are delivered on-line. This means you can study in your own time, at your own pace without having to attend college. It also means that you get your own personal on-line tutor who will guide you through your course and make sure you have the support you need to pass your exam and achieve your qualification.
If you prefer to study in college you can attend on a Wednesday and / or Thursday morning between 9.30am and 12 noon. You will have access to a computer and a member of our staff will be available to give you a helping hand with any aspects of your course that you need help with. You can attend as many of these sessions as you need.
This course will provide you with a full range of English skills at Level 1 or 2. It is also designed to teach you how to apply these skills to solve problems in real life situations. Successful completion of the course leads to a nationally recognised Functional English qualification at Level 1 or 2.
If you don’t already have a GCSE in English, Functional Skills Courses are a very useful steps towards GCSE level qualifications.
Online English courses are flexible and available all year round
*This course is free to eligible learners over the age of 19 who do not already have a GCSE English grade C or above.
