Having your staff members access Functional Skills training is an effective way to ensure that they
are able to achieve high standards when they use English, maths and ICT.
Functional Skills are a great way to ensure that your staff have up to date knowledge of English,
maths and ICT. Whether it’s to improve efficiency, save time or to help you compete in your market,
well trained employees are the first step.
Your team member can access each skill separately according to their need. We are able to
contextualise each of the Functional Skills to benefit your organisation and raise the confidence of
your employees, allowing them to get the job done.
Each participant will undertake diagnostic assessments which will highlight their strengths and
weaknesses, enabling their trainer to focus on what is needed to improve.
Functional Skills are also undertaken as part of an apprenticeship. Should you feel your organisation
