Wiltshire Exam Centre was founded to provide an affordable and accessible option for private candidates wanting to access Functional Skills exams and assessments. Our clients are home educated young people and other private candidates who have self-studied or taken courses elsewhere.

Over time we have added more qualification options for home educators and for young people who have not been able to get the support they needed at school. These options include ASDAN short courses and the Prince's Trust PDE qualifications.

This site aims to answer any questions you may have, but feel free to contact us with any further queries.

ASDAN Places


We currently have 5-6 places on ASDAN short courses.

We will be taking registrations until 28/08/2022, before closing to begin registration for Functional Skills.

Please get in touch for details


September Pricing


Our pricing has been slightly changed, with effect from September 2022. We strive to keep costs as low as possible but sadly awarding bodies raise their prices each year and we do need to revise the fees of invigilators, assessors and IQA's.
Therefore there will be small increases to Functional Skills, the PDE and ASDAN short courses, as well as resits and cancellation costs. Please note, we must now get tough on cancellations and no-shows - this costs us money through re-booking exams, admin time and external invigilators, who still receive a small payment for last-minute cancellations.
Thank you for your understanding.


Functional Skills Registration


Registration will shortly be opening for Functional Skills Maths and ICT. If you are looking to take your assessments in the next six months, now is the time to register! Please email us for details.

Important Information about English FS


Due to the difficulty in arranging the Speaking, Listening and Communication component of English Functional Skills, we have made the decision to cease offering English with effect from the November assessment run.

We will still be able to accept English registrations for the time being, but the learner must take their SLC assessment by 30th April 2022 (Reading and Writing can be taken later, if required).

We at WEC are very sorry for any disappointment or inconvenience this may cause.


AQA Unit Award Scheme


Did you know we are an approved centre offering the AQA Unit Award Scheme?

AQA Unit Awards are available in a HUGE number of topics, from the Life of Anne Frank to Creating a Bug Hotel, and we currently offer these exclusively to educational groups with a minimum of four learners.

Keep an eye out for our new Childcare course, coming soon and available to all, which will be certificated by AQA!


Registrations Open


Registration open for Maths, English (*note this is the final opportunity to register for English) and ICT, closing Friday 12th November. The next run will open in January for January-June, as there will be no enrolment in December. Check out our pages on Functional Skills for more information, or email us at
