Functional Skills – English and Maths
All learners that come to us who have an Education Health Care Plan is given the option to complete courses in Functional Skills. Thanks to funding, we were able to take on a new Functional Skills Tutor who teaches our young people on site throughout the day. 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 4 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.
We encourage our young people to thrive and get the most out of their time with us, but completing their Maths and English Functional Skills is completely optional!
