Functional Skills in Maths and English

Our functional skills courses are accredited and allow you to work towards a City & Guilds qualification in either Maths or English. If you're not sure if a Functional Skills course is for you, we're offering some taster courses this Summer. 

You're entitled to a free Functional Skills course in Maths or English if you haven't yet achieved a GCSE at Grade C/4 or equivalent.

Our main English and Maths Functional Skills courses leading to a qualification start in September and February. To be notified when the courses are available to book, sign up to our E-newsletter

English for Speakers of Other Langauges (ESOL)

ESOL courses are for anyone whose first language is not English to develop your reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.  To be notified when the courses are available to book, sign up to our E-newsletter

We also offer a range of short ESOL courses during the year.  

Adult Reading Scheme

At Inspire we provide a free 1:1 adult reading scheme, which can help readers with the basics and beyond. We will match a local adult who wishes to improve their reading to a volunteer coach and arrange for them to meet each week in one of our libraries to work through a reading manual designed for adults.
