What opportunities will this course give me?

The Functional Skills Maths programme is designed to provide a strong base knowledge in mathematics, as well as deliver the transferrable skills needed to thrive in a huge range of settings.

Youll learn how maths can - and should - be used in everyday life. Armed with these valuable skills, you will feel more confident and equipped to approach new employment or simply enjoy a more enriched daily life.

The course is suitable for all; there are no entry requirements, and all levels are supported. Youll be placed into one of five levels dependent on your understanding and previous experience with maths. You will be assessed prior to enrolment so that you can be placed into an appropriate level of teaching.

All learners will enjoy a bespoke learning journey, built entirely around your aspirations and study availability. Plus, on completion, youll have the opportunity to progress through higher levels or explore different subjects within both GCSE courses and apprenticeships.

Why is this course for me?

All of our functional skills courses have proven incredibly valuable when applying for other courses or varied areas of employment.

Everything you will be taught will be done in a way that delivers transferable skills, both helping your day to day life and better preparing you for your chosen career. The programme is also incredibly flexible, adapted to your preferred style of learning. Whether you enjoy the energy of group lessons or prefer one to one training, you can choose to complete the course in a setup that best suits you. This includes working either at your place of work or in the College.

You have the option to apply for a course with either a fixed start date, which is September or January, with face-to-face teaching (unless in lockdown) or a flexible start date which is remote teaching only. Apply against session M25V for the latter. With the flexible option there are no set course dates, meaning you can start the programme in line with your schedule and commitments.

The functional skills qualifications encourage you to demonstrate your applied skills in everyday contexts. Youll leave the College proficient in how to use numbers, common measures, handling data and problem solving using mathematical properties, as well as developing your bank of basic skills.
