English & Maths

Strong English and maths skills are essential in every workplace.

Whether you’re just starting out or you need to sharpen your skills to gain access to further or higher study, we have different levels of courses to suit all abilities.

Studying English and maths in college is different to school as we’ll show you how these skills are relevant to the industry you work or are interested in or in an everyday context.

All students on our study programmes will study English and maths as part of their course to either improve their skills or to achieve better GCSE grades.

Plus, our friendly teachers are experts at breaking these subjects down, making them relevant to everyday life to help your understanding and building your confidence. And they use games, quizzes and online apps to make learning fun.
