English, Maths and Essential Digital Skills
We offer courses for adult learners in a number of key subjects, allowing students to study at the most appropriate level. Our friendly tutors and small class sizes mean that we can ensure a supportive learning environment. These courses are either co-funded or fully funded by the Government in most instances, meaning that students benefit from either a reduced fee or no fee at all.
Functional Skills qualifications teach how to apply practical Maths, English and ICT skills to real-life and vocational contexts. They progress from Entry level to Level 2. You should expect to spend approximately 1-2 hours a week studying at home in addition to class attendance.
These Level 2 qualifications have a greater academic focus and require wider technical knowledge and skills. They require a greater level of time commitment too, and you should expect approximately 3 hours a week of studying at home in additional to class attendance.
These new government-funded qualifications help learners to develop the digital skills required for life and work. They include qualifications at Entry Level and Level 1. You should expect to spend approximately 1-2 hours a week studying at home in addition to class attendance.
