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 and more qualification options for home educators and for young people who have not been able to get the support they needed at school.
This site aims to answer any questions you may have, but feel free to contact us with any further queries.

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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
