Group to deliver free English and Maths courses over Easter

Monday, 27 March, 2023

The Heart of Yorkshire Education Group is inviting the public to take part in free English and Mathematics courses over the Easter break – enabling them to boost their literacy and numeracy skills.

The intensive three-day courses will enable learners to confidently apply these skills to everyday life and work settings, enhancing their prospects in education, training and employment.

The Functional Skills English programme is designed to improve learners listening, speaking, communicating, writing and reading skills, as well as increase their vocabulary. Learners will also receive support in CV writing and job applications, helping them to boost their career prospects.

Covering a wide range of areas, students completing the Functional Skills Mathematics course will learn about budgeting, comparing product prices, problem solving and timekeeping.

Andra Ghencea, Director of Adult Skills at the Heart of Yorkshire Education Group, said: “Even if you already have the skills you feel you need, but don’t have a qualification to prove it, your skills could be easily overlooked when searching for jobs or trying for a promotion. Qualifications like these don’t just help you in everyday life, they can provide learners with transferable skills which can enhance their career prospects and aid their progression onto other English and Mathematics courses. The Functional Skills English course in particular is perfect for those who speak English as a second language and want to continue expanding their vocabulary.”

Study will take place over three sessions running from 9.00am to 4.00pm, on the following dates:

  • Castleford College - Tuesday 4th April until Thursday 6th April 2023
  • Wakefield College - Monday 3rd April until Wednesday 5th April 2023

Attendees will undertake an initial assessment to determine the level at which they should start the course.

Functional Skills courses are offered to anyone aged 19 and over to develop essential skills and knowledge in a range of topics including spelling, form filing, grammar, interpreting numbers and dealing with money.
