Core Maths

NCFE is proud to offer a new Level 3 Certificate in Mathematics for Everyday Life.

This qualification enables post 16 learners not studying AS or A level maths the opportunity to undertake a Level 3 maths course alongside their main programme of study. It will enable them to retain, deepen and extend their mathematical understanding through using maths to solve meaningful and relevant problems which will prepare learners for university, academic or vocational learning, employment and life. The word ‘life’ in our qualification title refers to all aspects of future needs, the key themes being:

  • Understanding personal finance
  • Understanding commerce
  • Understanding chance
  • Understanding data.

Mathematical problem solving will be contextualised in the following vocations and areas of interest in:

  • business and administration
  • engineering and manufacturing
  • health and science.

This qualification qualifies for the advanced maths premium, which is funding for additional students studying specified level 3 maths qualifications.
