This is the ideal programme for individuals who would like to develop and enhance their Maths Skills. Learners will be required to study across three sections of mathematical skills, Representation, Analysis and Interpretation.
This course aims to provide the learner with the foundations of real-world maths skills and providing the confidence in applying them in everyday scenarios. From adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing whole numbers to interpreting information in tables, diagrams, charts and graphs this course explores transferable skills crucial to boost your employability.
Home learning is the ideal method of study for many. It provides students with the flexibility to study at a time and pace to suit the individual. This means you can fit gaining a qualification in around your busy lifestyle.
Qualification Title: NCFE Functional Skills Qualification in Mathematics at Level 2
Qualification Code: 603/5065/X
There is no previous learning knowledge or experience needed to enrol on to this programme, however we recommend having a reasonable level of English reading and writing skills. This makes the Functional Skills Maths Level 2 course easily accessible to anyone who would like to develop their skills.
Students will be required to study twelve sections, each of which will explore a different aspect of this subject area. To successfully obtain the qualification, learners will need to complete a series of practice papers and, with the tutor’s approval, the final exam.
- Handling Data
- Interpreting Data from Frequency Tables, Mean, Median and Mode
- Common Measures
- Ratio and Proportion
- Fractions, Decimals and Percentages
- Measure, Shape and Space
- Measuring Length and Distance with Metric or Imperial Units
- Measuring Capacity with Metric or Imperial Units
- Finding the Perimeter and Area of Squares and Rectangles
- Finding the Volume of Cuboids and Cubes
- Scales and Scale Diagrams
Each assessment will be marked by your tutor who will confirm whether additional work is required or whether you are ready for the exam.
Students will be required to sit a final exam in order to achieve the qualification. The course price above includes all learning materials, tutor support and practice papers. Additional fees are applicable for the final examination. Students can choose to attend the Oxbridge Home Learning college in Birmingham to sit their exam for £95. However, if you wish to sit the exam at a centre closer to where you live, the price will be £145 plus the cost of mileage for an invigilator to come and supervise your progress.
Support: Students will be assigned a personal tutor who will be on hand to answer any questions or queries you may have during your studies. You will have access to six months tutor support; extensions are available for a fee.
On successful completion of the course and final exam learners will receive a NCFE Level 2 Functional Skills Qualification in Maths. Accreditation by NCFE is a guarantee of quality. It means that this learning programme has been scrutinised and approved by an independent panel of experienced educational professionals and is quality audited biannually by NCFE.

Distance learning is the most flexible and convenient approach to studying. There is no need for you to attend college and, therefore, you can study anytime, any place, anywhere that fits in with your lifestyle. Distance learning programmes are ideal for people who may have a full-time job, or other commitments, that won’t allow them time off to study.
You'll need to be able to commit the required time to your studies. We recommend that you choose a course you think will interest you, and help you to achieve your ambitions. If you would like some advice, or further information, please call our helpline free on 0333 3445 690.
To purchase a course, simply click on the ‘Buy now’ button against your chosen course and follow the on screen instructions. Alternatively if you would prefer to purchase the course over the phone, call 0333 3445 690 and speak to one of our expert course advisors.
The course operates through a study pack and access to your own personal tutor. Once you have chosen your course we will send you your study pack, which you will be required to work through before completing the course.
Depending on the course you have chosen, you will either be required to complete assignments and submit these for marking as the course progresses and/or be required to sit an end exam. The end exam could be in the form of multiple choice questions, or be an invigilated exam at a registered test centre.
Your completed assignments will need to be sent to your tutor for marking/assessment, you will then receive written feedback and guidance. It may be possible to submit your assignments by email, however you will need to check this with your tutor. Please be aware that your assignments will be maintained by NCCHL for moderation and audit purposes.
These requirements will always be listed on the course description page, so please refer to this for details of what is required for each individual course.
Depending on the course you have chosen, and the amount of time you can commit, it could take from 6 weeks to 12 months to complete your course.
The duration of the course is largely down to you though. The beauty of home learning is that it allows you complete flexibility to fit your studies around your lifestyle and other commitments. You can dedicate as much, or as little, time as you want to your studies - no one will be chasing you for your work or asking why you haven’t submitted an assignment.
We do strongly recommend, though, that before you purchase a course you assess your ability to commit the necessary time to completing the course in a timeframe that will not leave you losing your motivation.
We guarantee that you will receive your course materials within 5 days of purchase, but for many courses we would anticipate that you will have to wait no more than 48 hours.
The course materials are always sent to you via a tracked courier service, to ensure that you receive your study pack within our stated period.
The cost is largely dependent on the type of the course. The longer the course is the higher the cost will be, due to the size of the study pack and the nature of the qualification.
All prices are clearly stated on the course description page and will always be displayed prior to you committing to purchase a course.
Please note that there may be additional fees required should your course have an external assessment, such as A Levels, ICB qualifications etc. To clarify, please speak to a course advisor.
You will be allocated your own personal tutor who can be contacted via e-mail, telephone, fax or post for help and advice on any aspect of the course.
Many courses require that you submit work to your tutor during the period of study and your tutor will assess your work and pass comments back to you. Your tutor is available to you as much as you need them.
Please be aware that officially the tutor support provided with the course is for a period of 12 months, although if you need longer let us know and we’ll endeavour to extend that.
All of our courses are accredited, so you need to show that you have acquired the knowledge to pass the course – this may involve sitting an examination, but it depends on the course you have chosen.
Some courses require you to be continually assessed throughout the course, while others may require an end of course exam or assignment (which may be completed at home) to be submitted to your tutor.
Certain types of qualifications, A-levels and GCSEs for example, do require you to sit an invigilated exams at a registered test centre. You will need to organise and pay for the examinations yourself, however full details of what you need to do will be available from the centre who are delivering the qualification.
If in doubt, please email ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’, NCC can then discuss or put you in touch directly with the course provider.
Yes, there are no geographical limits to where you can study.
You just need to be aware that all tutors are based in the UK and work may need to be submitted to them via post, although in most cases e-mail can be used.
Where the course requires that you sit an invigilated exam at a test centre, there are many exam centres outside of the UK. However, we would advise that you check with us before purchasing one of these courses if you want to study from abroad.
All of our courses are accredited and you will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the course.
For more information about this please see the section of the website that details how awarding bodies work and what the different types of qualifications are.
Yes, you can take as many courses as your time allows. But we would recommend that you clearly evaluate how much time you can commit to your courses of study.
The good news is though that if your circumstances change you can always take a break and come back to your studies.
Additionally, discounts are available if you buy more than one course at the same time.
Your work will be marked and feedback returned to you within 12 working days after submission. This is because our tutors are required to provide detailed, considered feedback to our learners that may take a while to formulate. We find that by working this way, our learners actually complete their course in less time, as they rarely need to submit an assignment more than twice.
Whilst it is possible to submit multiple assignments at the same time, we advise that our learners submit only one at a time. We want our learners to develop as they progress through their course, and find this is best achieved when a student embarks on a new module having taken into account tutor feedback from the previous submission.
No, we provide everything you need to pass your course.
Once you have chosen your course, you can either purchase the course online which will enrol you, or you can call our helpline on 0333 3445 690 who will sign you up for the course and arrange to have all your learning materials sent to you.
If, after receiving the course, you decide it isn’t the right course for you, you can simply return the goods within 14 days and we will send your money back in full for the majority of courses (excluding postage and packaging) or you can choose another course that you feel would suit your needs and ambitions better.
Our online courses are completed through our online learning system after receiving login and access instructions. You will not receive any course materials through the post. The paper based version is posted out in a binder to your home or place of work and requires completion of a portfolio of work that is submitted to your tutor for marking.
All NCC policies and procedures can be provided on request from NCC directly by emailing email@example.com or calling 0333 3445 690.
