  4. Hello, I recently took an assessment for the funded level 2 English Functional Skills course, I was not eligible due to being too advanced. I am currently a full time caregiver looking to gain some qualifications. I didn't manage to achieve a good English or Maths GSCE at school. I was wondering if someone could advise me on this. King regards, Lauren.

    Hi Lauren, 

    Thank you for getting in touch.

    If you scored too high in your initial assessment for Level 2 English there isn't much we can do to help I'm afraid. It may be worth doing a bit of research on other training providers to see what they offer. 

    If you are interested in a Maths qualification you can apply with us and we may be able to help. Here are the links for Level 1&2
