Success Story:

Just stick with the programme, and in no time you’ll be ready to gain a Level 1 or Level 2 national qualification that will boost your confidence and open up new horizons for your career.

Course Content:

Skills Escalator requires you to commit to 12 hours per week at our main St Mary’s campus over a 10-week period.  The 12 hours per week is divided into three four-hour sessions focusing on maths, English and IT.  If you already have a qualification in one of these, then you can escalate to the next learning level.  Alternatively, you can opt for one or two of the subject areas, in which case your weekly time commitment reduces.

Entry Requirements/Qualifications:

This course is for you if you do not have a Maths GCSE A-C grade and would like to improve your skills.  You will need to attend an interview with a member of the maths team.  An initial assessment will tell you what skills you have already.  A diagnostic assessment will show you which skills you need to work on. 

Learning Style:

Students work on individual learning programmes within small adult groups.

Equipment Requirements:

All you will need is a folder, some paper and a pen or pencil.


Functional Skills Maths, English and/or ICT qualification at level 2.


Once you have achieved your qualifications, you can progress onto that course you have always wanted to do.   You could use your qualification to help you with job hunting, go onto the next level or to a new area of learning.
