Maths and English are a central part of all Study Programmes and Apprenticeships. They will be delivered discretely and will also be embedded within your vocational programme. The delivery of maths and English skills uses real life topics and practical scenarios based on real life situations.

Functional Skills are the essential elements of English, Maths and ICT that individuals need to enable them to engage successfully as citizens and progress to further learning or employment.

Functional English, Maths and ICT help students reinforce skills in communication, problem solving, listening, time management and team working.

All students will have the opportunity to achieve a nationally recognised qualification. City & Guilds Functional Skills English, Maths & ICT qualifications are available from Entry Level to Level 2.

Students who need to re-sit GCSE Maths and/or English will be given the opportunity to study for their re-sit(s) alongside their vocational qualification.

Grade 4 is the new Standard Pass grade. If students have not achieved a Grade 4 or better in both Maths and English, they will need to continue studying these subjects.
