With our dedicated and creative teachers, studying Functional Skills English at EMBS will be engaging and interesting! Lessons are student-led, which means we plan our lessons according to your needs and preferred learning styles. Classes are small, so you get more individual attention than in a mainstream classroom. No matter what blocks you have experienced in the past, we are intent on helping you understand the subject, gain confidence and feel a renewed enthusiasm for the English language.
Lessons are planned to ensure all students are relaxed and engaged, and staff build strong relationships with students to help them achieve their academic targets.
Students work towards English Functional Skills qualifications, which are recognised by employers and helpful in gaining employment or progressing to study further courses. The classes develop students’ skills in the four areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening. We deliver all levels of Functional skills qualifications from Entry 1 to Level 2 English (Level 2 is equivalent to GCSE grade 4).
