About this course

Have you ever noticed how often you need maths skills in everyday life? This course is designed to inspire you to improve your current maths skills and help you to remember any areas that you may have forgotten.  A gentle introduction to the mathematical basics of multiplication; fractions; decimals and percentages.   

This introduction to functional maths skills will build your confidence with numbers and calculations in preparation for you transferring to an accredited Functional Maths qualification after February half-term.

Having a Level 2 qualification in maths opens up more job and training opportunities.

What are your learning outcomes?

You will be able to: 

- identify the maths skills you need to tackle a problem 

- use maths tips and tricks to find the solution you’re looking for 

- explain the process you used to get an answer and draw simple conclusions from it 

- use your new-found maths skills in everyday life

This course is FREE if you need a Level 2 Functional Skills Maths qualification (you will be asked to self-declare on the enrolment form)
