About the course
Do you struggle with everyday maths, monitoring your bills and your childrens' homework? Do you want to get a job or go for a promotion? Do you want to get a national qualification?
If your answer to any of these questions is yes, then this course is right for you.
Our Maths courses are FREE no matter what your age and you can start the course at any time. We have courses available throughout the year which are available in the morning, afternoon and some evenings.
Prior to starting the course you will need to have an assessment to check your level of Maths. Once you have been assessed you will be able to enrol and a start date will be confirmed.
What you will learn
These qualifications are offered at various levels, teaching anything from the very basics to more advanced skills. Our classes offer you the opportunity to work on the skills that you need. Your tutor will support you with the preparation for taking the Functional Skills accreditation at the right level for you.
Students work on individual learning programmes within small adult groups.
You will take a Functional Skills Maths qualification at level 1.
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.
Once you have achieved your qualification, you can progress to the next level or to a new area of learning. You could use your qualification to help you with job hunting or to get onto that course you have always wanted to do.
You can enrol at anytime throughout the year. Just make an appointment for your first visit by phoning 023 8048 4848.
