Our Offer

Here at South Leicestershire College, we offer a range of English and maths courses, giving you the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications.

English & Maths functional skills

Functional skills qualifications start from entry levels and offer progression up to level 2. This is a flexible course which is delivered to meet your learning needs. The level 2 is nationally recognised and accepted by many employers and universities as an equivalent to the GCSE. 

This is ideal if you have not studied English and maths recently and would like to improve your skills. This could benefit someone who wishes to improve their job prospects and a pathway to the GCSE courses.

Brush up your skills:

  • Stand alone qualifications
  • Progression to further study
  • Suitable for all ages and abilities.
  • Friendly supportive classes 1 full day per week for 4 weeks

This is a demanding course that requires dedication. You will need to commit to 3 hours study at college with the expectation of homework. You will need to have an initial assessment score of level 2 to demonstrate you can cope with the demands of the course.
