Early Years and Teaching More about this subject

All of our courses are fully-accredited by the Council for Awards in Care, Health and Education (CACHE), the UK's leading provider of vocational qualifications for those working in early years education, childcare, and health and social care.

Lambeth College is offering four different study programmes that focus on improving English, maths and employability skills

At first glance, English can seem like a confusing and complicated language. Do you use theretheir, or they’re; is it youryou’re, or yore; and what’s the difference between its and it’s. And that’s before we even get to the homophones – those words that are spelt (or spelled) differently but pronounced the same – like stare/stair, aisle/isle, and suite/sweet.

Yes, the English language can be complicated, but here at Lambeth College, we teach it simply.

Whether you’re looking to advance to further study, land your perfect job, or just improve your English skills for everyday life, we have a wide range of English qualifications and courses, specifically designed to aid adult learners. With seven levels available - from Entry Level 2 Functional Skills, all the way up to GCSE English – we’ll help you find the perfect level to match your current skills and future ambitions.

So, if you’re looking to take your first step towards your perfect career, return to education, or just make more sense of the words you read and hear every day; you’re just one step away from gaining a nationally-recognised qualification with Lambeth College.

And don’t worry, not even our expert tutors think the word yacht makes any sense.

If, following the outcome of your assessment, you are not quite ready for Functional Skills at a specific level, we will be able to offer you an alternative course at the same level, which has no exam, and this will enable you to develop your skills to then progress onto Functional Skills. These courses are available at every level (except Entry 1) and are RARPA courses (Recognising And Recording Progress and Achievement). Your course will be tailored to you and your progress will be monitored with an Individual learning plan, you will also receive a certificate of achievement at the end of the course.

The levels we offer are:

  • Adult Entry 1 Edexcel Functional Skills English
  • Adult Entry 2 Edexcel Functional Skills English
  • Adult Entry 3 Edexcel Functional Skills English
  • Adult Level 1 Edexcel Functional Skills English
  • Adult Level 2 Edexcel Functional Skills English
  • Adult GCSE English (AQA)

Please click on the Functional Skills or GCSE course link at the top of the page to apply, and secure your place.
