WHAT WE PROVIDE:

We can provide training in Functional English and Functional Mathematics through all five levels from Entry Level 1 to Level 2 to help learners develop skills in communication, problem solving, listening, time management and team working.  This means that:

  • Someone with Functional Maths at Level 2 should be able to understand number, shape, space and measures and be able to use a range of data types and techniques to solve practical problems as well as check the accuracy of their solutions – for example to work out the total cost of materials for a work project or how much in pounds sterling they will receive or pay when converting between sterling and a foreign currency for the sale or purchase of goods from overseas.

 

  • Someone with Functional English at Level 2 should be able to read and understand a wide variety of texts as well as write effectively and with purpose, structure sentences and punctuate appropriately – for example to write a logical and persuasive letter or presentation to help them to get their point across when it matters most or writing a successful job application.

 

  • Someone with Functional ICT at Level 2 will develop the skills and confidence to use a computer and should be able to find and select information, present and communicate information through word processing, spreadsheets, databases, presentation and publication software as well as internet and email – for example setting up a spreadsheet to present accounts data and applying functions to automatically calculate totals.Computer skills are widely used across all areas of everyday life and having these skills will help people to access much more information as well as improving job prospects.

 

Our flexible approach to teaching and learning can be more engaging and motivating for learners helping them to develop their full potential whatever their aptitudes or abilities.  The over-arching aim of the functional skills courses provided by 1st Stop Tuition will help to raise standards in your workforce ensuring they are able to make a valuable contribution to your organisation so your company can thrive in today’s rapidly changing economy.
