English and maths (Functional Skills)

  • Students

    If you were unsuccessful in achieving the maths and English grades you wanted and are undecided about your career goals then why not join one of our literacy or numeracy classes. We can help you work towards the maths and English qualifications you need in order to progress onto a vocational or apprenticeship programme. Improving your maths and English skills can help you become more confident in your work and daily life, and help you to prepare for further study or training. This well-established programme offers you the opportunity to improve your skills within a supportive and friendly atmosphere. Some aspects of the course will be assessed through short tests, exams, written assignments as well as discussions and presentations.

    Students can work towards Entry Level qualifications and Levels 1 and 2. The assessments are written papers at Entry Level and can be on-line or paper based at Levels 1 and 2.

    Classes run at various times across our 3 campus as per table below (time slots are subject to change), your level of English and/or maths as well as current group size determine which options are available.

    Please note that all start times and dates could be subject to change.
