A good command of Maths and English is essential in order to operate as a Police Officer. While formal grades are not required for you to advance your application with the Police Force of your choice you may be subjected to some testing at interview stage. Outsource operate a range of Functional Skills courses designed to bring your Functional Skills up to the required level. These courses can be delivered alongside, or after, the completion of your CKP programme. These courses are normally delivered at no cost to you. During the first day of the course candidates will be invited to undertake a Functional Skills scan. If this scan indicates a need to improve certain skills your trainer will discuss the results and options with you on a one to one basis.
