Course Description
NOCN Functional Skills in English is designed to assist learners of all ages and levels to be able to confidently demonstrate the practical skills needed in real-life situations.

Every student will undertake an initial assessment to ensure they are enrolled onto the right level course. We employ adaptive learning techniques that focus on gaps in attainment and incorporate individual learning styles. This enables us to tailor the students' learning pathway and target areas for improvement. Our course provides foundations for learning and life, which includes academic (Functional Skill Qualification Certificate) and personal development opportunities (Award or Certificate in Skills for Employment, Training and Personal Development).

We provide a blended learning approach that combines the best elements of 1:1 or small cohort classroom lessons combined with break out sessions for self-paced e-learning that encourages digital literacy skills and student engagement.
