Functional Skills

At eTraining we value Functional Skills and ensure anyone starting a course with us is assessed for competency in Maths and English at the start of the course. Then supported and monitored throughout its duration.

Completion of Functional Skills can be mandatory if enrolled on an apprenticeship, unless equivalents are already held such as a GCSE at the required level. We review each learner individually and will advise on what is required.

Functional Skills can also be delivered separately to improve your workforce’s ability or you own skills.


Functional Skills Available
  • level 1 and 2 in maths
  • level 1 and 2 in English
  • level 1 and 2 in ICT

Level 1 is the equivalent of a grade D GCSE

Level 2 is the equivalent of grade A – C GCSE

Math and English Functional Skills are fully funded, whether you choose to take them as part of a wider course or as a standalone qualification so incur no extra cost.

ICT can be delivered free as part of an apprenticeship, please ask for cost if you would like to do these separately.

Where possible we take a blended delivery approach. This includes 1-2-1 sessions from a tutor in addition to using our online skills development site.
