Our Functional Skills courses will help you to develop the skills you need for future career opportunities, real-life situations or further study.
Proficiency in English and maths are essential skills for any job or career pathway you may wish to pursue. Employers and universities are looking for candidates to demonstrate good literacy and numeracy skills and we can help you achieve this so you can expand your opportunities and acheive your career ambitions.
We offer Functional Skills maths courses from Entry Level to Level 2. Depending on which level you start your Maths course with us, you can progress through the levels up to Level 2. We have daytime and evening options available at both of our campuses.
Your maths course will cover a range of mathematical techniques. You will start by improving your understanding of numbers, fractions and percentages, and move onto applying your knowledge, measuring shape and space, and handling data in practical situations.
There are no formal entry requirements but all new learners will need to complete an initial assessment to determine your level of Maths and assign you to the correct level of study that best suits your needs. No prior preparation is necessary for this assessment.
Depending on your level of study, you can progress until you achieve Level 2. Once you've achieved the appropriate standard, you can progress into employment or higher education.
If you are aged 19+, how much you pay for your course and any additional costs will depend on a number of factors. Learn more about course fees and finances.
