This intensive course will help you revise for Functional Skills Level 2 maths in 6 weeks. On passing the Functional Skills maths Level 2, you will get the equivalent of a GCSE C or 4 (new classification) and would be able to use it to complete an apprenticeship, an access to higher education course or apply to university.
There are no age restrictions for working towards this qualification and no specific prior achievements required. However, it may be useful to have completed a Maths qualification at Level 1.
Study method and support
- This is an online course that allows you to study from anywhere and at any time.
- Unlimited Email support (work marked and feedback given)
- Weekly phone/ remote tuition support (30 min each) – (Zoom, Appear-in)
- Two mock exams (week 6) with feedback given to determine if you are exam ready.
This is a revision course and prepares you for the Functional Skills maths Level 2 exam, which you should take separately.
