 Sucess Story

Sucess Story

Having failed maths in school I had lost confidence in myself to succeed, however, this all changed because of my online learning experience with Runway Training.

The skills plan builder and online assessments are very clear to follow, and I learned quickly once I got started and grew in confidence.

The online webinars are excellent, and the tutor explains each subject slowly and clearly – I found this a great way to learn as I could work at my own pace and watch the webinars over again until I was confident and able to complete the online learning assessments.

The support and encouragement from Runway Training was great – they gently pushed me to succeed, kept in touch and always praised my efforts.

I would thoroughly recommend Runway Training and am delighted to have passed my Level 2 Functional skills maths.

We work with many universities across the UK which include:

How long does the process take?

It is very hard to give an accurate time frame due to every learner being different, working at different speeds and having differing amounts of time available to study however there is a recommended amount of 55 guided learning hours to be completed for these qualifications.

What support will be given?

Each learner has a main point of contact who checks in with them on a monthly basis and can be contacted via email / telephone if they require any support. The learner may be invited to our ‘virtual classroom’ 12-week sessions, sent additional resources or pre recorded webinars.

What is the process for exams?

Our examining board, City & Guilds offer a full remote option, allowing the learner to sit the exam from their computer at home or work. Alternatively, we can offer face to face exams at one of our centres. The wait time for exams is 7days for remote invigilation, 24hrs for online centre invigilated exams or 2 weeks for paper exams.

    We’ve been working with Runway for over a year now and have been really pleased with the service received. Due to the nature of Degree Apprenticeships, our learners’ Functional Skills experience really varies – from those who have struggled in the past and are feeling anxious, to those who just need a little exam prep. Runway have always understood that our needs are diverse, and that flexibility is key. Apprentices being able to access learning and exams from all over the country has been invaluable. Our account manager has always been helpful, knowledgeable, flexible, and most importantly has put the apprentices first.

    Runway Training helped me achieve a qualification that I missed first time around. From the support provided by the tutors I found the videos and guidance intuitive and became an interesting learning experience rather than a means to a qualification. Would recommend anyone thinking of doing a functional qualification, it’s now helped me progress into further qualifications to aid my career opportunities.
