This course may be for you, if:
• you want to access further or higher education
• you wish to progress at work or access new job opportunities
• you would like more confidence helping your children with homework
• you have a passion for maths
You will study the new Pearson Edexcel GSCE Mathematics 1MA1F specification, which will help you to:
• develop fluent knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical
methods and concepts
• acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems
• reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences, and draw conclusions
• comprehend, interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context.
The content is divided into five key topics – Number, Ratio & Proportion, Geometry & Measure, Statistics & Probability and Algebra. You will study the Foundation tier with the potential to achieve up to a grade 5, which is the equivalent to a ‘high’ C, and is highly-prized by employers and universities.
Alongside the work you complete in class, you should also plan to complete one or two hours of independent work outside of class, part of which will be regular homework.
Classes are delivered in one, three-hour session per week by an experienced and successful teacher. The session will be a combination of taught instruction, individual work and pair/group work.
The course encourages and values independent learning – you will be provided with access to a range of online resources to compliment the face-to-face teaching.
We are fully Covid-ready and the course can be delivered online should the need arise.
There are no formal entry requirements, only a positive attitude and a determination to work hard, though you may be advised to study a stepping-stone qualification first if your current skills do not meet the demands of the course.
You will be asked to sit an initial assessment so that we can identify the
level you are currently working at, and over the first six weeks of the course,
your teacher will help diagnose any areas for development.
“I didn’t enjoy maths when I was at school and had left it until now to try
and rectify the issue and prove to both myself that if at first you don’t
succeed, you should definitely keep trying. The teacher made the entire process
really enjoyable and
“If I was struggling, the teacher would go above and beyond to help me to understand. The teacher was welcoming and patient throughout the sessions and made sure everyone was involved and understood. I could tell that every online Skype session was efficiently planned and was just as informative as a lesson inside of College.”
“I just wanted to take some time to express how much I enjoyed being in class this year. The teacher always made extra sure that I understood the material. Being able to count on them for extra help and clarification was really special to me and shows me how much the teacher cares about the happiness and success of his students.”
“Whilst I always prefer a classroom setting, the online sessions allowed us to complete all of the subjects we needed. The presentations were clear and easy to follow and the teacher gave us plenty of examples and explanations to help our understanding. There were opportunities for interaction, and as always, fantastic help, encouragement and support.”
