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.



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.
