Soldiers enrolled onto a Level 2 apprenticeship are expected to study towards Level 2 English and mathematics if they have already achieved English and mathematics at Level 1. When a soldier being enrolled on a Level 2 apprenticeship does not have any prior attainment in functional skills, they will be assessed on enrolment and will study English and mathematics at Level 1 or Level 2 depending upon an assessment of their current skill.</p> more like this

This has changed and the emphasis is now on a return to personal contact and enhanced schools visits through the RAF 'Skills for Life' curriculum-based programme and its Schools Engagement Plan.</p><p>The Armed Forces will only ever visit a school by invitation from a teacher to support school activities.</p> more like this
