City : Learning Campus : English and Maths
Why are These Skills so Important?
All employers will expect you to have some English and Maths skills and many will want you to have at least a Level 2 / GCSE grade C in these subjects.
Don't Panic! If you don't have English and Maths skills at level 1 or level 2, there are options available to you - check the information on how you can improve your Maths and English on GOV UK.
Most courses up to Level 2 are government funded.
Having a Level 2 Qualification means that you will be confident in everyday reading, writing, and maths. Improving your skills in these areas will help you get ahead in your job or even get a new job.
Improving your English and Maths can open up a new world of opportunities to you, and most courses take place in a friendly and supportive learning environment!
