This resource covers what is expected at the Entry 1 ICT Functional Skills exam. It follows the structure of an exam paper.  An E2 version is also available.

I based in it on a Skillsworkshop English resource by Isabel Jordan.

Editor's note

Super practice for Entry Level 1 ICT. I love it when skillsworkshop users adapt and recycle existing resources. :) You can find the E2 version of this resource, along with Isabel Jordan's original Pavement Plants Functional English resources under "See Also".
