Functional Skills are applied qualifications which enable students to demonstrate real-life skills in mathematics. Students demonstrate the skills through real-life assessments set in every day contexts.
They are recognised as gateway qualifications, used in many existing apprenticeships and by students who may not yet have achieved a GCSE grade C/4 or above; they are widely used in adult education.
You will demonstrate both mathematical skills at the appropriate level and the ability to apply mathematical thinking effectively to solve problems successfully in the workplace and in other real life situations.
You will have one online or paperbased assessment.
You will have access to our facilities, library, resources and learning materials.
You should already have achieved level 1 functional maths.
If not, you will be asked to sit an initial assessment so that we can identify the level you are currently working at and if this course is suitable for you.
Over the first six weeks of the course, your teacher will help diagnose any areas for development.
You may be eligible for funding. We will discuss this with you when you apply.
