Supporting the effective delivery of Functional Skills in English – Level 1 & 2

English is an essential life subject that holds challenges for many, especially around spelling and presenting information; approaching delivery in a different way can achieve a positive shift in results and mindset.

The Functional Skills English requirements under the new reforms are more challenging in their assessment expectations. These changes are essential for Functional Skills in English to remain in line with the GCSE curriculum and therefore need to be positively embraced.

This webinar will help to understand some of the key challenges and different approaches that are needed to allow learners to be successful in the attainment of the necessary knowledge, skills and confidence needed to achieve a pass.



The learning objectives for the audience are to:

  • Build a positive attitude towards spelling.
  • Build a positive attitude towards presenting information.
  • Understand the most common challenges in the 3 components of the new assessments.



Target Audience

  • All providers offering Functional Skills qualifications in English at Level 1 and 2.
  • Managers and delivery staff involved in supporting learners on programmes that offer Functional Skills in English at Level 1 and Level 2.
  • Not appropriate for those who are only delivering Entry Level English or ESOL programmes.
