Course description

Do you want a qualification that will prepare you for Level 2 Functional maths, or even GCSE maths?  Level 1 Functional maths is a stepping stone on the way to those all-important Level 2 qualifications that employers, colleges, and universities are looking for. 

If you have an Entry Level 3 qualification in maths, or if you have already been working on your maths skills and made good progress, then why not apply for this nationally-recognised maths qualification? 

What can this course lead to?

After this you might move on to either Functional Skills Maths Level 2 or GCSE maths, depending upon your level of skills, and what the requirements are for your next step in either Further or Higher Education.
