Functional Skills are qualifications in English, mathematics and ICT that equip learners with the practical skills needed to live, learn and work successfully and the ability to apply these skills effectively to a range of purposes in the workplace and in other real life situations. It is currently delivered by the professional tutors of Wigan Council.

Functional Skills is FREE for adults age 19+ who do not have a GCSE grade D or equivalent.
