Certificate In Essential Skills - Numeracy

This course will help you to understand, use and calculate figures in the areas of mathematics which you are likely to come across in daily life.

Course Overview

The topics taught will be tailored to your individual needs and will be taught at a level appropriate to you.

  • Assessments will need to be completed by everyone who wishes to commence on this course to identify what your level is. 
  • Once assessments have been marked, tutors will then be able to confirm via email or phone call what your result is and if you are eligible to enrol for the course the following week of the course start date.

Classes are practical and are taught in small groups so they are ideal for adult learners or anyone returning to education. 

 Please note that on the fist night of class all applicants will be asked to sit an assessment. This assessment will determine your Essential Skills level and the allocation to a class. Please also note that if you do not arrive at the first night of class, you risk not securing a place.
