Functional Skills

Essential Skills for Life


Good English and Maths skills can make a big difference to your earning potential and are among the key things that employers look for in an employee. Maths is for life and not just classrooms and English is the key to understanding the world around you and the world understanding you.


Functional Skills enable you to develop the Maths and English skills you need to do your job and get through life. Because they are so important all apprenticeships require you to have achieved minimum levels in maths and English.


Don’t worry if you haven’t got the grades, ITEC can support you to achieve these, even if you didn’t do so well at school. From online courses with support in the workplace to additional support sessions with specialist tutors, we can help you unlock your full potential and become a more effective employee.
