Course Description

Course Description
We offer a range of maths courses, with options that include morning, afternoon or evening classes. Entry level classes provide a short introduction to formal classroom learning. They are designed to build up the basic Maths skills necessary for everyday life, and will allow you to gain confidence before progressing on to a longer Maths course.

We also offer courses for more confident maths learners. These courses are designed for those learners, who are confident that they can commit to longer periods of study. These courses can lead to gaining a Functional Skills maths qualification at either level 1 or level 2.
