Overview

This course is designed to assess your current working level and then to progress you from that level forward. You can work through a range of smaller stepping stone units to help grow your confidence in areas such as number, measure, shape, space and data. This will then give you the opportunity to work up the levels from Entry 1 to Level 2. You will be required to come in for an initial assessment before you can enrol on this course.

Please contact our Admissions Team on 023 9387 9999 to arrange your initial assessment before applying.

This course is for students who do not have a grade C/4 or above in GCSE Maths. If you have already achieved a Level 2 Functional Skill in Maths it is suggested that you progress to a GCSE Maths Course. You will be required to come in for an initial assessment before you can enrol on this course.

The course covers: 

  • number – this includes place value, four rules, fractions, percentages, decimals and money
  • measure, shape and space – this includes metric and imperial measurements, conversions, perimeter area and volume, shapes, time, scales and scale drawings and formulae
  • data – this includes charts, graphs and tables, averages/range, interpreting and analysing data

 

The course is run on the main College campus and at various off-site venues in the local area. We have daytime and evening courses, run in two semesters. The first is September-February and then February-June.

We use a variety of teaching methods including:

  • Group work
  • Kineasthic activities
  • 1:1 teaching
  • Using new technologies
  • Classroom based assessment work

 

In class and external based assessments.

My experience at the college has been really good, it’s been really rewarding, all the lecturers were so lovely and supportive there’s no way I could have done it without them - the teaching has been outstanding.

Lucie Brooks, A Level student

My experience at the college was enjoyable and productive, with thoroughly helpful people surrounding you, an excellent experience. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was, with the work shop time and experience I had, it was a great two years preparing me for the next stage.

Edward Smith, BTEC student

The teaching and support was really great, the quality was really great, all the teachers really care about your education as well as your wellbeing, they take everything into consideration and they’re great.
