English

We’ve mapped a suite of UAS units to the English Functional Skills and Entry Level Certificate (ELC) specification. The units break down the subject content into bite-sized manageable chunks of learning making it accessible to more learners.

Learners receive a certificate every time they complete a unit.

Being able to reward achievement by giving rapid recognition of success in this way can boost a learner’s confidence in their own ability to make progress in English which in turn can increase engagement.
