Functional Skills is the basis of working life! Most employers will look for qualifications in Maths and English to be sure that prospective employees have the right skills for business.
We have over 90% achievement rate and our learners enjoy a relaxed and fun learning environment.
Here's what one learner had to say recently ..." both tutors have been fabulous and have the patience of saints ...so kind and understanding when one or more of us could not get our heads round a specific maths problem.... I've seen everyone in the group grow into people who love coming to classes, love to learn and actively study outside of class hours. It's been an honour to be part of this group and I'm very grateful for the opportunity!"
We have funding available for you to study your functional skills English and Maths with us here in Northampton.
It doesn't matter what your current knowledge is ; these courses take you in stages up to a Level 2 qualification ( Pass at GCSE) . We will give you an initial assessment which tells us your current level of knowledge and we work from there, this enables anyone to progress to Level 2.
Once you have been assessed and been given your level that you will work to we work out a timetable that will cover a minimum of 55 hrs of training per subject. This can be carried out in a block of 7 days, or can be spread out over a period that suits. In our experience working in a group, for a block of time gives best results.
Anyone can apply for our fully funded programmes if they are over 19, been resident in the UK for 3 years and have not achieved a pass at GCSE. It is a government initiative to raise skills in both English and Maths.
We have our own training room in Northampton which will hold groups of 10. We can come to you if you have a group who want to learn together.
There are lots of reasons why you may want to increase your knowledge in functional skills, you may be a parent who wants to help your children with their homework ?
You maybe looking to up skill in your career and need up to date qualifications.
Maybe you just want to know that you're getting the best deal in the supermarket or know how to write a letter of complaint or compliment to a company!
What ever the reason, having the confidence to use these skills in everyday life is rewarding as well as very useful.
Confidence ! This is a major life skill that we teach you throughout the course. We
have experience in working with people from all walks of life , some with multiple barriers to learning and working. One of the key things they get from our programmes is increased confidence and self esteem.
Achieving Maths & English is one thing, having the confidence in an interview is something else !
We aim to equip you with the skills to sit an interview with confidence and feel comfortable fitting in with your new team!
