Fully Funded Online Functional Skills Qualifications available to Greater London Authority Residents.

Runway Training are able to offer London residents free Functional Skills in English and maths at level 1 and level 2. The courses are delivered online and there is a fast-track option enabling you to go at your own pace.

We have years of experience in helping Londoners achieve Functional Skills and subject to eligibility can provide the courses at no cost. Each course begins with an initial assessment to check a learner’s current working level. You will then be given a diagnostic assessment to accurately identify your strengths and areas for development. Following this we will be able to create you an individual learning plan that is accessible 24/7.

Learners will also be supported by interactive videos, live webinars and 1:1 support as required. We will also support all learners through two practice exams that will be marked online and feedback given to ensure you are exam ready. We have a very high first-time pass rate and have assisted many learners wanting to achieve Functional Skills to meet the entry requirements for the Police, Army, Ambulance Service and NHS. As well as those wanting to access Further and Higher Education.
