Would you like a qualification in Maths or English?

If you do not have a GCSE or an ‘O’ Level you can work towards a City & Guilds equivalent. This can help you improve your everyday skills and increase your confidence. Click here to view our Adult Essential Skills Qualification and click here to browse our GCSE Qualifications.

Practical sessions are run during the day and evening. We offer courses at all levels in small groups; there will be an initial assessment to find out which level is right for you.

Please note: these courses are for people whose first language is English. For those for whom English is not a first language, courses are available through the ESOL team, call 01252 405555 for more information.
