Maths Workshop courses enable you to improve your skills in Maths and gain nationally recognised Functional Skills qualifications. All Functional Skills courses are free.
You will be invited along to an assessment to find out what you need to work on and agree your learning aims.
For example, you may need to:
• Brush up on fractions or percentages
• Brush up on using numbers or metric measurements
• Learn how to handle data.

Maths Workshops are aimed at those who already possess the basics of Maths. They are assessed by Functional Skills tests at Level 1 or 2.
You may need just a few weeks of practice or up to 72 hours of tuition – it’s all free.
You can begin at any point in the year and you will work towards one or more of the following qualifications:
• Level 1 (equivalent to GCSE grades 1–3)
• Level 2 (equivalent to GCSE grades 4–9).
You can use the Level 1 course as a stepping stone to a Functional Skills Level 2, or move on from Level 2 to a GCSE Maths course.
