About these qualifications
This suite of NCFE English qualifications is designed to replace the Adult Basic Skills in Literacy programmes and it supports learner progression towards achieving GCSE (A*– C) or Level 2 Functional Skills in English.
The qualifications are based on the National Standards for Literacy (the Core Curriculum).
To support the flexibility and responsiveness required by adult learners the qualifications are provided in a comprehensive suite of English qualifications from Entry Level 1 through to Level 2, consisting of single unit Awards, ‘themed’ Awards and a Certificate at each level. This supports learner progression through to GCSE (A* – C) or Level 2 Functional Skills in English.
