Need an English qualification, and need it now?
Our programme of High Intensive Training (HIT) courses are aimed at giving you the skills you need, without the wait.
This quick HIT of Functional Skills is an intensive week-long course aimed at giving you a Level 1 English qualification, if you successfully pass the Functional Skills exam at the end of the week.
This intensive approach for English won’t suit all learners, so we will ask you to complete a quick diagnostic assessment before the course. This is just so we can find the right level for you.
Functional Skills in English are qualifications which are recognised and valued by employers and may help you to gain employment or progress in your current role.
How will the course be delivered?
The course will be delivered on a residential basis, over 5 days and 4 nights.The course will include a blend of classroom-based activities and some individual work alone.
Northern College starts where you are, building on your life skills and experience. You don’t need a formal qualification to begin your studies with us. But, we will ask you to take a quick diagnostic assessment to ensure you’re working at the right level for you.
What could this course lead to?
After this course, you may want to consider one of our other Quick HIT courses to help you to gain employment or progress in your current role.You might also want to consider progressing onto higher level Functional Skills or GCSE courses.
