Course Description

This course is aimed at adults aged 19+ on or before the 31st of August.

16-18 year olds will be offered relevant English and maths qualifications alongside their full-time study programme and do not need to apply separately.

This course is free if you do not currently hold GCSE maths at Grade A*-C (or 9-4 on the grading system). The course cost for those students who may wish to aim for a higher grade is £362. Please email for further fee information.

Functional Skills maths courses are ideal for adults wishing to refresh and improve their skills. These qualifications will help you progress on to GCSE, other further educational programmes or may help you gain employment.

Entry Requirements

Before you enrol, 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.


Functional Skills 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 practise these in real life scenarios. Your progress will be regularly reviewed with your tutor.

We offer Functional Skills Maths qualifications at Entry 1, Entry 2, Entry 3 and Level 1.

Work Experience

Not required.


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