David asked:

So if I don't have a functional maths level 2 and an employer says I need a level 2 in maths would this be classed as higher than level 2.............


Hi David, this Level 3 Award in Mathematics for Teaching Numeracy(RQF) is equivalent to A Level so yes it would be higher than a level 2. Thank you!

This was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.
David asked:

If I need longer than one year due to anxiety I hope that I would just pay one price and be able to get as long as I like to complete.


Hi David, we do offer paid extension plans if you need longer than the 12 months. Thank you!

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.
