Many people missed out on getting an O Level or GSCE first time round.
The five Colleges of Further Education offer free Essential Skills courses which provide qualifications which are comparable to GCSE C grade. Some people undertake them to get a qualification, others so they can help children or grandchildren with homework.
The course runs once a week for 15-20 weeks starting in January and September. Contact the College directly to register. The Maths/Numeracy course at Level 2 meets one of the criteria for entry onto the Open University Nursing programme – it must be completed by January for February application deadline. Some of the Health Trusts are offering classes, contact your local Learning & Development team.
