Functional Skills

Key Skills are being replaced by Functional Skills. These are the essential skills for personal development for all learners. BCA’s important Functional Skills programme will enable you to practise and acquire qualifications in English and Maths.

Employers value these skills, and universities expect students to be fully competent in them. Functional Skills are not only about knowledge – they are about the use and application of English and Maths in real contexts. Using work from your main programme of study and guidance from staff in additional sessions, you will gain a Functional Skills qualification at a level, and in subjects, which suit your needs.

Functional Skills are an integral part of all full-time courses.
