Coronavirus Update

Eastleigh College is now closed to the vast majority of learners and has now moved to online learning. The College remains open for 16-18 year old learners of key workers, and those learners with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). However for both categories, learners are asked to stay at home where it is safe to do so. Consistent with public health advice, learners and staff are asked to follow public health guidance and the steps outlined via the 'read more' button.

What opportunities will this course give me?

Many employers, level 3 courses and some university courses require a Grade C/ 4 in GCSE Mathematics as an entry requirement.

What will I be learning?

The course runs from September to June, and three exams are taken at the end of the year in May/June. There is no coursework for GCSE Maths.

We offer daytime and evening classes. Lessons take place once a week starting mid-September for 32 sessions.
There are usually no lessons during Hampshire school holidays.

Skills taught on the course include:
• Number work
• Geometry (Shape, Space and Measures)
• Statistics & Probability
• Algebra
• Application of these skills to your daily life
• Reasoning and Problem Solving

Why is this course for me?

Students will be expected to attend weekly lessons which will be delivered as a mixture of taught sessions, group work, pair work and individual tasks. There is also the opportunity to practise past exam papers at appropriate times. There will be an emphasis on developing the ability to use and apply maths in your daily life, and develop reasoning and problem-solving skills. Students must be prepared to undertake private study.

What do I need to sign up?

Students who would like to enrol on this course will need to attend an initial assessment session in order to ensure that you are enrolled onto the correct course for you. Attendance at the initial assessment session can be arranged by calling the college reception.

The course starts in mid-September, and only in exceptional circumstances are late enrolments considered.

Is there anything else I need to know?

This course is aimed at students who have a sound grasp of basic Mathematics and wish to gain a GCSE Maths qualification, up to, and including a Grade C/ 9. It is also for those who wish to develop their understanding of Mathematics, and gain confidence in using this in their everyday lives.

For your first lesson, bring along paper and writing equipment.
