Functional Skills in English, Maths and ICT. These are key elements of your Apprenticeship Framework. If you do not already have a GCSE at grade A*-C (or new grade 9-4),  in these subjects you will be required to study Functional Skills at the appropriate levels. Maths and English skills will support your apprenticeship programme, assisting you with assignment writing, research, job applications, presentations, managing your own finances and interpretation of data, to mention just a few.

Most employers look for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have Maths and English GCSEs at A*-C (or new grade 9-4). This is why the development of Maths and English is so important, whatever your field of study.

Entry requirements

English, maths and ICT GCSEs at grade A*-C (or new grade 9-4).

If you do not have these, we can support the development of your maths, English and ICT skills through completion of Functional Skills in the relevant subject.

Assessment

How you will be assessed
