Functional Skills Level 2 Equivalent
Skipton Tutors supports adult learners to select and then study for the most suitable qualifications for them. Functional skills level 2 equivalent qualifications include GCSE as well as maths and English functional skills. These qualifications can be used to get into University or complete an apprenticeship. We help lots of people looking to do a level 2 maths and english equivalent to get into Nursing for instance. The key is to ensure that each student selects the best route for them. As functional skills is a shorter course and generally people find it easier to pass, we normally recommend the functional skills level 2 equivalents, rather than the full GCSE’s.
The level 2 maths equivalent consists of around 35 topic areas that build on each other. Normally students find the first few hours of this revision challenging until they have the foundation knowledge that then makes further study less challenging. Once a student is ready to take a functional skills maths exam they can actually do this from home, via Ofqual regulated exam centres. This is another reason why the level 2 equivalents are more popular than the GCSE qualifications.
The level 2 English equivalent is a very popular qualification amongst international students who are coming to the UK to study or for a career. Also if a learner hasn’t achieved a grade C or level 4 in GCSE English Language then the functional skills level 2 equivalent will be essential for further education and most job applications.
Whether it is the functional skills level 2 maths and english equivalents you need support with, or any other subject, Skipton Tutors is here to help. Contact our support team today to learn more about our service and the tuition we provide in Skipton and the surrounding areas.
