How much does it cost?
The cost is dependent on where you live and will vary subject to how far a Runway invigilator will need to travel.

Very often we have funding for certain parts of the UK and so it is always worth calling our Functional Skills team to see if there is funding in your area and if you meet the eligibility criteria.

Are there any hidden costs?

No, all fees include;
  • Initial and diagnostic assessments
  • All interactive resources
  • Tutor support including marked practice exams
  • Fully invigilated exam session
  • Certification and postage
The only additional charge would be for an examination re-sit as we have to cover the costs incurred from resending an invigilator to you.
How do I book an exam?
Booking an exam couldn’t be easier as we run an on demand service and where possible aim to get an invigilator out to you within 48 hours of your request. Simply get in touch with our Functional Skills team and they will arrange for an invigilator to come out to you.

Sarah’s story
For the past three years I had worked as a teaching assistant at a local school and had achieved both my supporting teaching & learning level 2 NVQ and the level 3. Having increased my hours to full-time I was keen to push for a promotion and gain the Higher level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) qualification, however HLTA required me to have a level 2 in mathematics.

Having only achieved CSE’s at school this was not a qualification that I held and having looked around at a variety of providers they all required me to attend classes, something that just wasn’t possible working full-time and with a busy home life.

However with Runway I was able to study around my commitments and log on at times that suited me. The service was fantastic from start to finish and I felt supported throughout. Without Runway I don’t think I would have found time to achieve my level 2 maths Functional Skills qualification and I certainly wouldn’t have got to where I am now. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to study Functional Skills.
