Standalone Functional Skills in Maths and English

Standalone Functional Skills in Maths and English are available to employees in England who do not have a GCSE C or 4/5 or above, or hold a qualification at the same level.

Before submitting your nomination, please ensure you have authorisation from your Operations Consultant or Franchisee as Lifetime Training will request confirmation from them.

Standalone Functional Skills Costs

The cost for each standalone Functional Skill ‘aim’ is £150 + VAT and an invoice will be raised for the total number of aims payable to the restaurant at the start of training.

Applicants can complete functional skills in either Maths or English, or both at either level 1 or 2.

For example:

  • Maths at each level only has 1 aim = £150 + VAT
