There are no set entry requirements. Before starting the course, you will be assessed for suitability and to agree the level you can study. Prior qualifications will be used where appropriate.

Who is the course for

These are part-time courses suitable for adults (over 19 years old) that have been out of full-time education for some time. Functional Skills is for students who need to gain a solid understanding of the basic mathematical skills needed for further study, the workplace or everyday life. Everyday decisions are often based on mathematical information. Developing your maths skills will help you to make the best choices.
