Functional Skills Maths for Adults
Functional Skills Maths can be studied part-time over 1 year. Classes take place at various sites with different start dates through the year. Classes are available during the day and in the evening and are 2.5 hours long, based in a friendly and welcoming environment. Functional Skills is the right course for you if you want to improve your number work, measuring and data handling. When you complete Functional Skills at level 1, you should be ready for GCSE Maths.
When you apply for a maths course at the college, you will be invited to one of our centres for assessment and interview to see which course best suits your needs and abilities. The centre where this takes place is not necessarily where you will study and we will ask you about your preferred campus during the interview. You will also need to do a skills assessment, which is nothing to worry about, we just need to make sure you are enrolling onto the correct course. It will also allow us to identify if you have any additional support needs. Please note, the skills assessment and interview can take up to 2 hours so allow plenty of time.
Your strengths and weaknesses will be assessed at the beginning of your course and you will agree an Individual Learning Plan with your teacher who will give you feedback on your progress throughout the course. You can work on topics to meet your individual needs at a pace that suits you. You will be expected to complete study outside the classroom and access to online resources to support your studies will be made available.
At the beginning of the course we will check you have the IT skills you will need to support you in your learning and you will complete an IT qualification.
Start date: From January 2019
