Course description

Functional Skills Maths is a highly valued qualification to help both young people and adults develop mathematic skills that can be applied in employment and everyday life.

Whether you are starting from the beginning, or you already have a basic understanding of mathematics, Leeds College of Building is here to support you in achieving a Maths qualification.

There are five Functional Skills Maths levels available with the highest being Level 2 which is equivalent to a GCSE grade C/ 4.

What we offer

At the outset, our expert, friendly trained staff will work with you to assess and establish which level you’re currently at and which you should aim to achieve. We’ll then let you know when and how many classes you’ll need to attend.

We have several different and flexible delivery options available for our learners to choose from: online classes and face to face classes during the day and evenings, as well as bespoke classes for larger groups and companies.

No matter the delivery option you choose, you will receive plenty of resources to help you learn as well as practice exams for you to complete – and lots of support from our qualified and enthusiastic teachers.

Learning outcomes

  • Read, understand and use mathematical information and terms
  • Identify suitable operations and calculations to generate answers
  • Check the sense and reasonableness of answers
  • Present and explain results clearly and accurately with reasoning to support answers


To gain a Functional Skills Maths qualification, you are required to sit and pass an exam. Once you have passed the exam, you will receive a certificate from the awarding body as proof of the new skills you have learnt.
