English and Maths
Maths and English skills are essential for gaining employment, that all-important promotion or going onto higher education. It is now very commonplace for employers to ask for these qualifications either GCSE Grade 4 or above or the equivalent of a Pass grade at Level 2 Functional Skills.
We have designed Level 2 Functional Skills courses to develop your skills in a practical and accessible way to support your future development. These courses are delivered at times that fit around existing work commitments for a short 12 week period, meaning you can gain the essential qualifications whilst continuing to work.
Functional Skills Mathematics help students develop a knowledge and understanding of problem-solving, reasoning, applying maths in context and the functional elements of Mathematics.
This is an online course but you will be required to come onto campus to complete your end of the course assessments.
The course will start on September 2023.
To secure your place on the Maths Functional Skills you will need to attend an informal interview with a member of the Maths team who will also do an initial assessment to test the skills you already have.
