English and Maths qualifications for adults 19+

Need an English or Maths qualification to progress at work? Want to feel more confident writing emails or budgeting your finances? Need to brush up your skills to help your children with their homework? It’s never too late!

We offer both Functional Skills and GCSE level qualifications and you will sit an assessment before enrolling so we know which level is best for you.

We offer part-time Functional Skills in English and Maths, both online and in College. You’ll be in class for around three hours per week, but our online option means you can study from home.

If it’s GCSE level you’re looking for, we offer part-time English and Maths GCSEs both in College and online. You’d need to commit to three hours of lessons each week, but this can be online if that suits you best.

Functional Skills courses are FREE for anyone aged 19 or over who lives in South Yorkshire.

GCSE courses are FREE for anyone aged 19 or over, who lives in South Yorkshire and doesn’t already hold a grade C/4 in the subject.

You can find out more about these courses or apply online over at the English, Maths and ESOL page.
