About this course

This 3 hour session aims to help adults gain confidence in their Reading and Writing skills.  This is taught in line with the adult Functional Skills curriculum from Entry level 3 to level 2.  This course will give a good insight into what is involved in our 19-week Functional English courses that lead to a City and Guilds qualification. These will begin in September 2021 and will be a good progression route from this short course.

You will be taught how to;

  • Identify and correctly use adjectives and verbs

  • Identify and correctly use text layout and some language features.

  • Produce examples of your own writing that is descriptive, persuasive, informative or instructive.

  • Feel more confident in your writing skills.

You will need:

  • Pen and paper
