About this program

Functional Skills Maths (Distance Learning)

All assessments are externally set and marked by our awarding body, Open Awards.

You will be required to pass an externally set and marked assessment which tests your ability to use Maths in practical settings such as: Work and education / Community, citizenship and environment / Family, home and social issues.

You will only sit the externally set and marked assessment when you are ready, and our Exams department arranges this at a time that is convenient for you.

Admission requirements

Functional Skills give you the opportunity to demonstrate real-life English and Maths skills and achieve a qualification as an alternative route to GCSEs.

Functional Skills English Level 2 is at the same level as a GCSE grade C or above (legacy GCSE grading), or Level 4 or above (reformed GCSE grading).

Many universities now accept Functional Skills instead of an English Language GCSE. Level 2 Functional Skills qualifications can also be used to meet the requirements of Advanced Level Apprenticeships.
