Like many other employers, you may well feel that far too many new entrants to the workplace lack a firm grounding in the basics. Functional skills training is a practical, highly effective way of tackling the problem head on.
Our training modules and qualification awards are making an important contribution to the target set by the UK government of having 80% of the national workforce with level 2 Maths and English by 2018.
With each module typically taking 12 weeks, our functional skills training is carried out in the form of learning on the job.
Learners benefit from enhanced skills in English, Maths and IT – enabling them to operate confidently, effectively and independently at work and in their everyday lives. Many gain a new lease of life and flourish when they’re able to apply their new-found knowledge, skills and enthusiasm to their job – as well as being able to gain entry to apprenticeships and progress their careers.
Employers of all sizes, both private and public, can make their organisations far more effective by having more literate and numerate people, improved skills to draw on, and a bigger and better pool of trained staff.
