The Functional Skills ICT course offered by RACPD is a standalone course and is available to everyone. The Functional Skills maths and English courses are also standalone but available to veterans and dependants only. Military personnel wishing to study standalone Functional Skills maths or English should contact their PD Advisor or RCMO for further advice.
These courses provide you with the key skills you need in life and the skills that are essential to any future job, as well as your career progression in the military. For example, if you left school without GCSEs you will need Level 1 English and maths to get promoted to JNCO, and you will need to achieve Level 2 to be promoted to SNCO.
