English and maths

Equip your pupils with the vital literacy and numeracy skills they need

It can be challenging to engage with pupils who need to complete English and maths qualifications as part of their vocational study. It’s so important to boost their confidence and find the course that will help them fulfil their potential.

Our Functional Skills and  bite-sized English and maths qualifications will help your pupils achieve what they need to progress. And they’ll benefit from our expertise and support.

Learning isn’t one size fits all 

We believe that everyone should be supported to gain essential Functional Skills in a way that meets their individual needs. Research has also shown that 68% of people think pupils should have the option to take alternatives to GCSEs.*

“Pupils wouldn’t be able to easily progress in to work or on to further education without essential English and maths skills.”

Essential English and maths in everyday life

Essential English and maths in everyday life qualifications are a brand-new option for your learners who are looking for an alternative route to gaining the core English and maths skills that they’ll need in everyday life. Built around the Functional Skills subject content, these qualifications allow you to build a flexible learning programme that collects evidence of achievement along the way, rather than through a final assessment.

 We’ve been committed to playing our part in improving the literacy and numeracy skills of learners of all backgrounds since 1848, and we’re therefore delighted to have partnered with The Prince’s Trust to ensure that all funds from these qualifications will be donated to their literacy, language and numeracy programme.
