Functional Skills

If learners have and EHCP and are enrolled onto one of our courses, they can be eligible to complete their qualifications in Functional Skills.

Each learner is given a timetable for their day, meaning all Maths and English lessons are incorporated in their Horticulture or Catering lessons too. This allows our learners to gain a great balance between their practical learning and classroom time.

All Maths and English classes are run in small groups of 6 or less, this means our learners are getting a high level of attention and support throughout their courses. Our tutor, Tim, incorporates Horticulture into their lessons allowing our young people to use their maths and English skills in real life situations.

When a young person begins their time at Green Corridor, they will be assessed to identify which level of Maths or English they would excel the best at. Once they have completed their initial assessment, they will begin at one of the following levels:

  • Entry Level 1, 2 and 3

  • Level 1

  • Level 2

Learners are also given the opportunity to climb the ladder of levels from Entry 1 to Level 2 whilst they are at Green Corridor.
