We know that many of you struggle with these subjects for one reason or another and it is our aim to make your time with us as painless as possible. If you need a Maths or English qualification please click on the Calendar link where you will find information on where and when the courses are running. You will also find the details of whom to contact. Any service personnel , Dependants, Reservists, Civil Servants and supporting staff can attend these courses at any base.

    What to expect

    The courses we deliver vary in length depending on the subject and difficulty level. For GCSE Maths the course is 10 days long with IGCSE English and Physics being 5 days long. Most Functional Skills courses are 5 days long with some Functional Skills english courses being 6 days long. To enable us to provide a targeted and streamlined delivery, you will be asked to carry out a diagnostic test as part of a pre-course learning package. This will highlight areas of strength and also the areas that need to be developed.
