Functional Skills 

It is expected that as you progress through your apprenticeship you will develop your maths and English skills through learning and assessment activities both on the course and in your workplace.  You will explore this development with your learning coach to develop your own personal learning journey, and the Library and Learning services provision will be valuable in supporting this. 

In addition, you may need to demonstrate your achievement of English and maths through the completion of Functional skills exams.

Library and Learning Services can support you in your studies to learn the skills you need to pass your English and/or Mathematics exams.
