Entry Requirements

Before you enroll, we will make sure you are directed to the right level of course for you through a Maths assessment/interview. You should be able to state which skills you wish to improve, have clear goals you wish to achieve and be able to work independently.

All students must take a Maths assessment which is required to find the right study level for each applicant. If you are unsuccessful in achieving a place on the GCSE, you may be re-directed towards a Functional Skills Maths course.


courses cover practical Maths skills including calculating with whole number, fractions and percentages, ratios and scale, measuring shape and space, as well as using statistics and presenting data. Task based activities will allow you to practice these in real life scenarios. Your progress will be regularly reviewed with your tutor.

Work Experience

Not required.


On successful completion of a FUNCTIONAL SKILLS MATHS course you will receive a qualification at either Entry Level or Level 1. You may then progress to the next level of Maths, to a GCSE course, or on to other further education courses.
