Hi is there any skills/qualifications I can do at home that will improve my CV, or just skills in general, preferably anything that is free.

1) Learn a language on Duolingo, or another similar app. You may not become fluent but you could easily get to a very strong foundation, and from there you probably could.
2) You could also try coding, that's very accessible, and can be quite enjoyable and cheap if you're interested and savvy.
3) You could just practice and play around with Microsoft Office - there are so many buttons and settings, and familiarity with them is incredibly useful nowadays.

You could definitely learn a language for free on Duolingo!

But that will depend on what jobs you're applying for. There are lots of resources for learning programming languages for example but if you want to be a nurse then having C++ on your CV isn't going to help.

For food safety while you can study at home you need to register with a licensed test centre for the actual exam at least in Scotland as I completed a food hygiene course through the HFT department at my school as they are allowed to give out the exam papers

They aren't necessarily qualifications but there are good courses of futurelearn on a variety of different topics that vary with length eg 3 hours a week for 2 weeks for 4 hours a week for 6 weeks.
