This course will help develop students’ knowledge of English as a key life skill and will help form a basis for more advanced study.

The Functional Skills qualification is one of the most popular and flexible of courses. Functional Skills will allow you to gain a level 2 qualification much quicker than if you were to take IGCSES. The exams are available monthly, and can either be sat at a local exam centre or with us online. The course fees on our website include access to our online student portal where you will work alongside a specialised Functional Skills Tutor who will help you as you progress through the study materials and assessments. You will be able to ask your tutor questions throughout and  if you need something explained further your tutor will often send you further materials. As you get more confident, your tutor will set a series of practise exam papers, so you’ll know what to expect in the exams so you should feel confident when you take the real thing.


The course will be delivered online via our online portal, including Tutor Support for 12 months. All assignments are marked by one of our professional Functional Skills Tutors who will offer regular feedback and guide you through your course.

Throughout your course, you'll have the support of a Tutor to guide you. Additionally, you can reach out to the Student Support Team for help with any other questions you may have. You can be assured that you will receive unlimited support for your home study course, so there is no need to struggle or feel isolated during your studies.


You must successfully complete a series of assignments. Once all assignments and activities have been completed satisfactorily, you will then be ready to take your final exam. The final exam can either be sat online, via us, or through one of our many approved examination centre available nationally.

Please Note: Students will be required to arrange and pay for their examinations either online with us, or at an approved centre. We can provide an extensive list of these centres for you.

You have the freedom to start the course at any time and continue your studies at your own pace for a period of up to 12 months from initial registration with the full support of your Tutor.

Our Functional Skills courses are flexible. We understand that circumstances change and sometimes things can take a little longer. If you go over the 12 month period then talk to us. We are more than happy to discuss these options with you. 

The flexibility of Functional Skills is why it is so popular. They are designed to get you a Level 2 qualification that many universities and employers want quickly. The exams are available monthly, both online and in a local exam centre to yourself. So in theory, you could pass your Functional Skills in a matter of weeks, and gain that Level 2 qualification. 

In order to gain a qualification that is accepted universally, in schools, colleges, universities and in the workplace, you have to take an examination. We know that exams are not always a favourite for some people, so we have tried to make them as hassle free as possible by offering online remote exams for our Functional Skills courses. You can sit them at home, in familiar settings, without the hassle of having to find an exam centre to make it as hassle free as possible. 

Not only that, but if you choose the online remote exams, then should you not pass first time around, then a free resit is included. 

Yes, of course. When you enrol you will work alongside your Functional Skills tutor to work your way through the course. As you complete your tasks, your tutor will set you a series of exam papers to work through to make sure you know what you will be facing in the exam. 

Your tutor wont put you forward to your exam until you are ready, and will set you more practise papers to complete whilst you wait. 

Your tutor will go through the options with you once you are ready. When you are ready, then you will need to pay for your exam fees. 

Once you are booked in, there is typically a 2-4 week wait before sitting the exam, plenty of time to get in some extra revision. 

We can help you find a local exam centre, or we can offer our online remote exams.

Functional Skills English (3 x exams) £195

You may be able to find cheaper exam centres out there should you look around. We can help you with a list of centres in the UK. All of the exam centres set their own fees, so we cant give you exact figures, but typically they range from £80-£200 per exam.
