Course Information

Course Overview

Born out of the demand from the CBI, Maths functional skills help learners to use what they have learnt in a practical way to be mathematically functional.

Maths Functional Skills are about developing a skill base which is then transferable to other areas of learning, life and work. This would include things like problem solving, communication, team working and presentation.

We can offer you a nationally recognised certificate at a course level that is right for you, instilling the skills that will enable you to gain the confidence and ability to use maths both at work and at home.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

All of Runway Training’s Functional Skills qualifications work in the same way. We work through the following steps:

  • Initial Assessment
    This is to find the level at which you are working.
  • Diagnostic Assessment
    This looks at different elements of the course and identifies which areas you are competent in and which areas require more work.
  • Customised Individual Skills Plan (ISP)
    Your ISP gives you information, practice quizzes and assessments, video clips and other resources to help your learning.
  • Final Preparation Stage
    This is a stage of the course tailored to the learners individual needs to help prepare for their final exam.

Each learner is assigned a tutor to provide support throughout the learning process and administer any necessary additional learning provisions to help the learner to achieve the chosen qualification.

  • Many thanks Runway training

    I have gained much knowledge from this course. It is the first time I have accessed training virtually and everything was easy to follow with clear instructions for which questionnaire to complete, video to watch or attachments to read. In particularly I found the personality traits and what motivates others and may demotivate another. I will take this learning with me onto the next stage of my career.

  • Thanks for your support during my apprenticeship.

    I will like to show a big appreciation to Zoe Harrison for her support during my apprenticeship to guide me to get not only to pass but to achieve a distinction. She has been very dedicated and supportive during the time that I have known her whilst on the apprenticeship. Zoe has been a source of encouragement to me during times when I questioned whether the apprenticeship was for me and considered dropping out. I just wanted you to know that I believe that Zoe is extremely competent as an apprentice tutor and knows her craft. I believe that she is a valued asset to your organisation and under her guidance many apprentices will succeed. Many thanks

We have worked with Runway Training over the past year and are extremely impressed with the quality of the training, support and resources provided including the knowledge and expertise of all the staff that we have had the pleasure of working alongside. As an employer, Runway Training have provided us with the flexibility to up skill our staff across various departments including Care (both Residential and Domiciliary) through Health and Social Care programmes but also through Retail Management and Business Administration qualifications.  All staff have been trained to an extremely high standard and Runway Training have worked collaboratively with us, the employer, to support staff through all aspects of their training. Their breadth of knowledge and quality of provision make Runway Training a leader in their industry and it is clear to see how they have achieved all of their current and past accolades.  Their staff are all expert in their fields and it is evident that they pride themselves on professional conduct, which as a result provides highly knowledgeable and up skilled staff for our organisation; we cannot recommend Runway Training highly enough.

  • I had a fantastic learning experience

    I would like to say that I had a fantastic learning experience with the company, I found you very professional at all times, great communication throughout and very supportive. The on-line maths formative assessments where very good and helped me be successful. You were able to get me through the exam in time and I was pleased to receive my certificate when I returned from our holiday, so well done I would certainly recommend you to others.
