Adult Core Skills - English & Maths

These courses are ideal for developing your skills to help you move on to further study.

The recognised qualifications will also help your job prospects.

What will you learn?

English learning will start with basic reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. It will progress through understanding grammar, punctuation and sentence structure – to developing critical-thinking and text-analysis skills.

Maths courses will cover a range of mathematical techniques. You’ll start by improving your understanding of numbers, fractions and percentages, and move onto applying your knowledge, measuring shape and space, and handling data in practical situations.
