Maths and English courses for adults

We have a range of FREE Functional Skills maths and English courses for those who would like to improve their skills or those wanting to gain a qualification.

The Functional Skills qualifications will equip you with the skills needed to live, learn and work successfully and will enable you to apply the skills effectively to a range of purposes in the workplace and other real life situations. The qualifications can also help you secure a place when studying on other courses and apprenticeships or applying for jobs and promotions.

The course will run for one week, 9am – 4.30pm. You will be placed in groups dependent on the level that you are working towards, so that you are in a group with similar students. If you don’t already have a GCSE grade C/4, then this course is absolutely FREE for you.
