We even have a full online mock that you can take to make sure you are comfortable with the online set up. Finally as part of your course, we will provide 1 full mock paper with marked and detailed feedback from a qualified examiner.

Assessment

The level 2 English exam is 2 hours long for the reading and writing exam. You select the day you want to take the exam and then at the specified time an invigilator will send you an exam link via email. You open the exam link and the invigilator will talk you through the instructions, it is very straight forward. The speaking, listening and communicating exam is then sat a week later and takes less than an hour to complete.

Results

After the exam, if you are successful, a formal qualification will be awarded. This qualification can be used to gain access on to further education courses or to help applications to specific jobs. You will receive your results via email and then a certificate shortly after this.

Tuition

MME has the very functional skills English tutors who specialise in the exam and help learners on a one to one basis to overcome the challenges that English presents.

Mark asked:

How much extra cost is involved if I was to request the assistance of your one to one tutors and how much would they be involved with my learning?

Answer:

Hi Mark Our one to one learners usually charge £30 per session but through once booked into our exams service this support is reduced to £25 per session. A session lasts an hour and is delivered via video link, so is 1-2-1 in real time and as a result the lessons cover a lot of ground in a short period of time. On average learners have around 4 lessons in total before passing their level 2 English, so an additional £100 on top of the course and exam fee.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
