Functional Skills

Functional Skills are qualifications designed to help both young people and adults develop their essential Maths and English skills to apply them in employment and everyday life.

All our apprenticeships require qualifications - but don’t panic if you haven’t achieved these results already. Busy Bees Education and Training offers a range of sessions and tools to help you secure your functional skills qualification.

It may have been a while since you were last in education (or you may have never felt that confident in the first place!) but our friendly team will be able to help you to learn at your own pace. We offer training sessions on a variety of Maths and English topics, including BODMAS, Substitution and Fractions in Maths and Sentences, Paragraphs, Grammar, and Punctuation in English.

Our team helps learners apply skills and knowledge to real-life situations, giving you life skills you can apply both at home and work. We also offer revision sessions before sitting any exams to calm your nerves and support you to achieve your goals.

After completing your functional skills qualification, you will have developed your skills in English and Maths, whilst also gaining a qualification equivalent to a GCSE.

Our team are on hand to offer you all the support and guidance you need to get the very best out of our training offering. Meet some of our experienced Functional Skills members and find out a little more about who they are, what they do and why they are so passionate about supporting our learners.
