English and Maths
If you don’t have a level 2 qualification or a GCSE grade 4 (grade C) in English or Maths, it is likely that you will be able to work towards getting these free of charge. You will learn in a small group in weekly workshops, which last around two and a half hours. We teach in venues across North Tyneside, and the courses are available both daytime and evenings. The courses run for up to 30 weeks depending on your personal learning plan.
You can also study GCSE English or Maths which starts in September, but you can prepare for this by enrolling on a functional skills class which run throughout the summer. Our GCSE classes are delivered over 30 weeks, in the evening, at Norham Adult Learning Centre.
Modern Foreign Languages
We offer courses in French, German and Spanish. Our courses cater to a range of abilities, from beginner to advanced learners. These courses will teach you pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar and comprehension as well as building awareness of continental culture and society.
Practice English in a fun and easy way that lets you talk, listen and get involved with a friendly group. If you are new to English, our group can help you to feel more confident and to learn more words and phrases for talking to others and getting out and about. Join us to practice speaking to and understanding others day-to-day in lots of different ways.
British Sign Language
From an introduction through to level 1, our British Sign Language courses can help you to communicate with other British Sign Language users. In relaxed, friendly classes, you will develop your knowledge, skills and confidence to choose and use signs to communicate as well as understand and interpret signs by others. Covering a range of topics, you will learn how to hold signed conversations using simple, everyday language.
