Functional Skills qualifications can open doors to a wide range of job areas, help you to progress your career, and boost your confidence in maths. Whether you finished your studies recently or you’ve not studied maths since you left school, our interactive Functional Skills courses are designed to give you the skills you need to succeed.

By studying Functional Skills Maths, you will be starting from the level that suits your current skill level; level one will take you through numbers, measures, shapes, and handling data; level two will expand your knowledge to include fractions, decimals, three-dimensional shapes and more advanced ways of handling and interpreting data.

  • Are looking to study at your own pace. With frequent assessments, you can book your exam when it suits you.
  • Are looking to boost your skills in order to feel more confident in solving maths problems in your day-to-day life. This could be anything from household budgeting or adding up your grocery list to calculating how much wallpaper you will need for redecorating your home.
  • Are aiming to continue to further studies such as GCSE, A level or a vocational course but are looking for an introduction to maths through online learning. The skills learned on our Functional Skills courses will be transferable to many other subjects.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
