Online Functional Skills in Maths Course

Functional Skills in Maths is for learners who are looking to obtain the essential skills, knowledge and understanding to enable them to confidently and effectively carry out tasks at work and in their everyday life.

Generally, functional skills qualifications offer a softer and more flexible approach to obtaining a nationally recognised qualification suitable for further education, college, university or employment instead of taking GCSE Qualifications.

How does it work?

Our Online e-learning Functional Skills in Maths courses at Level 1 or Level 2 are completed in 6 easy steps.

We will provide you, the support you need to work through this process:

  • Initial assessments to determine your current academic level
  • Diagnostic Assessment to look at all of the different elements you are competent in and which areas require more work
  • Interactive Learning Resources will be provided based on your diagnostic assessment.  You will be given information, practice quizzes and assessments
  • Skills Checks are carried out after each learning resource is complete. These will quiz you at the end of any of the course modules to ensure you have gained all of the knowledge required for that particular topic
  • Exam Practice Papers will be provided once you have worked through all of the learning resources and are working at your desired level. You will complete 2 papers which one of our experienced tutors will mark and give you feedback on.
  • Your examination will be scheduled on a date that is best suited for yourself. You will come to our centre in London to sit it. 


What will you study?

The diagnostic test will determine how much and what you need to study on your course. If you are working at Entry Level and would like to obtain the qualification at Level 2, we will allow you to work through our e-learning course and use our resources and receive support until you meet your target.


The course content of our functional skills in Maths course includes:


  • Working with numbers (adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing)
  • Common measures (money, time, length, weight, capacity)
  • Fractions, decimals, percentages and ratios
  • Shape and space, reading charts, tables and graphs

This is all based on three main stands;


  • Representing – identifying problems and choosing the maths needed to solve them
  • Analysing – applying the maths and checking the answers
  • Interpretation – draw conclusions and communicate the results

Please see the qualification handbook for me information.
