Functional Skills (English and Maths) – Additional Support

So far LEAD Limited has provided Functional Skills (English and maths) support for 12 of our employees; 5 of whom have been assessed and appropriately supported for special educational needs such as dyslexia and dyspraxia.

The majority of these have already now passed their Functional Skills exams and achieved their full apprenticeship. I have no doubt that the others will also succeed due to the fantastic support that they are receiving.

The support is provided on site in 2-3 hour sessions, either in small groups or as one-to-one, depending on numbers and individual needs.

Everyone I have spoken to has been nothing but complimentary about the Functional Skills Manager, Helen Aymes, and about the high level of support available. One employee told me that he was particularly impressed with the support that he had received:

“She was really good!” he told me; “She made me realise that I can do it’.

Seeing the confidence and positivity that our employees gain from their success is very rewarding.

From an administrative point of view Helen, has been particularly well organised, helpful and accommodating, making my job as co-ordinator much easier.
