Functional Skills

Within the core subjects Functional skills are becoming an integral part of learning and will be assessed as part of the GCSE. The idea running behind this is to make sure that GCSEs are more relevant to real life situations and that students are aware of how to use their learning to complete day to day functions.


Colleges and schools are increasingly introducing BTEC courses as an alternative method of learning and achieving qualifications. Currently at Kemnal we are offering Science, Music and PE BTEC with the proposed development of a work skills BTEC for year 10 and 11 students next academic year.
