Brief Description

This short online 10 hour course is for adults who need to get started/ begin to learn English again prior to joining a fully accredited English Functional Skills course from October 2020. We will deliver this remote course through a virtual class environment with group participation.

The learner will study a range of English skills – reading, writing, speaking and listening – based upon real-life settings. This course has different aims to learning English as a foreign language. The course will help the learner to adjust and prepare for the full year course.  

It will include a diagnostic screening, discussion of prior learning, an overview of the Functional Skills syllabus and requirement.

Please note: This course is delivered online; you must be able to join in with ‘Google Meet’ or ‘Google classroom’ class teaching (at 6.00 pm), and submit your work weekly by photograph/scan or email to your tutor. You will be set work each week and will be required to complete it before the following lesson.

The course is fully funded by Cambridgeshire Skills, so full attendance is required; you will also need to complete an enrolment form so that the office can apply for the funding and complete an individual learning plan weekly with your tutor.

It will consist of four sessions of 2.5 hours guided learning.It will run on four consecutive Tuesday evenings, starting on the 8th September 2020.
