to work. These skills are valued by employers and further education and are a platform on which to build other employable skills. Better functional skills can mean a better future - as learners or as employees and in everyday life.
Functional Skills are essential skills in English, maths and ICT that enable everyone to deal with the practical problems and challenges of life - at home, in education and at work. They reinforce skills in communication, problem solving, listening and time management. For example, they help us recognise good value deals when making purchases, in writing an effective application letter, or when using the internet to access local services or online banking. They are about using English, maths and ICT in everyday situations.
This course will provide access to a wide range of activities aimed at engaging young people and hooking them into learning. The course will develop individuals’ willingness to learn and provide opportunities for them to develop skills and knowledge in a variety of subjects. The bespoke learning environment and specialist staff will support individuals to identify strengths which will inform realistic personal learning plans. Staff will work closely with individuals to explore and develop employability, personal and social skills alongside contextualised maths and English. There will be opportunities to complete practical and creative activities with a focus on healthy lifestyles and sustainable futures.
As the course develops, there will be opportunities to access vocational tasters in areas, including:
• hair & beauty
• hospitality & catering.
