Functional Skills: English and Maths

English and Maths are essential skills to secure a new job, move on to a further education course, or even to help your child at home with their school work.

Our functional skills classes will help build your confidence, learn at your own pace and tutors will create a personal plan based on what you need to learn. You will learn in an informal environment with skilled and supportive tutors.

English courses can be delivered flexibly with online study and in face-to-face classes.

Functional skills are recognised nationally by employers and provide entry to further learning, we offer up to Level 2 (this is the level most employers and colleges require and is the same skills level as grade 4 / GCSE Grade C)

In some cases, we can offer Fast track and learners can complete in a shorter amount of time.

English and Maths courses are tailored to your level – at a pace, venue and time to suit you and your family, and are always free.

All functional skills in English, Maths and ICT require an assessment to ensure you are placed in the appropriate class.
