Functional Skills Mathematics

Refreshing or developing your skills in maths can have a significant, positive impact that lasts a lifetime. The ability to use numbers confidently is essential in a variety of careers, but can also benefit you greatly in your day-to-day life and open up possibilities you hadn’t previously considered.
We offer a range of maths qualifications, including: Functional Skills in Mathematics (Entry Level, Level 1 and Level 2)
These courses run throughout the academic year, with classes available during the daytime and evening, starting in either the autumn or spring terms. Before enrolling on a course you will be required to complete an assessment so that we can identify what level is most appropriate for you and ensure you get the most out of your studies.

What will I learn?

"I left the army in August 2016 after serving as a front-line medic for 7 years. I decided to visit the college to explore my options as I knew I wanted to pursue a career as a vet. I chose to study an Access to Higher Education course with pathways in Chemistry, Biology and Applied Science- alongside my GCSE maths and English. The staff at the college have been very supportive. Their industry experience and depth of knowledge has been invaluable to my journey. I recently had an interview at the University of Bristol and was offered a place at the School of Veterinary Sciences – one of only 6 in the UK. The college provided me with a stepping stone to my desired career."Rebecca Williams
