I have been teaching Functionals Skills English and Maths for 5 years now. This has been in a college environment, on one-to-one and online learning. Working with college students with learning difficulties helped provide them with the tools and tasks for independent living. I also worked with college apprentices from various vocations who had struggled with GCSE’s in formal education.
I currently teach Functional Skills (Levels 1 and 2 Legacy and Reform) remotely online to apprentices and university students on behalf of Highfield. Highfield is one of the UK’s leading awarding organisations for vocational qualifications, work-based learning and apprenticeship qualifications. All my Highfield apprentices have now sat and passed their exams and I currently have one Reform student remaining who is studying for a degree and needs Functional Skills L2.
I enjoy observing learners who had no formal qualifications grow in self-confidence and it is highly rewarding to see them succeed when they previously had doubts.
