Course details

Course dates and times
Starting on 08 Mar 2023 and running until 07 Jun 2023

Do you wish that you had more confidence in your Maths and want to improve your skills? Do you struggle to solve maths problems, or find that your number skills are not as good as you’d like them to be? If so, then this course will give you the support you need to develop all aspects of Maths, build your confidence and gain a qualification to show off your skills.

Our Improve Your Maths classes are focused 11-week programmes to enable you to boost your Maths skills and to gain a nationally recognised Functional Skills Maths qualification at Entry Level 1, 2 or 3.

You’ll start your learning by coming along to an informal ‘Achieve your Maths goals’ session, where you’ll meet one of our tutors, discuss what it is you want to achieve and do some skills checks to ensure that you are learning at a level that is right for you.

To support you to achieve your qualification there is an expectation that you will complete a minimum of one hour of independent study per week to ensure that you are ready for your assessments; your tutor will discuss this with you and ensure that you have the support you need to achieve your goals.

What are you doing to keep learners safe?

The safety of our learners and staff is our top priority and we’ve made some big changes to our centres, from socially-distanced training rooms to staggered start times. If you choose to attend one of our classrooms in a centre then things will look different, but our staff will be as friendly and helpful as ever and are really excited to welcome learners back. Of course, if you choose to attend our virtual classroom from home, then that is fine too. Our staff and tutors have been really busy over the last few months ensuring that we can provide you will the same quality of teaching and learning virtually as we do in the classroom.

If you’re concerned about visiting one of our centres, please get in touch so we can discuss it with you.

What will I learn?

You will be able to develop your skills in the three main aspects of maths:

Use numbers to solve problems in familiar everyday situations including whole numbers, fractions and money.

Use different types of common measures including length, weight and capacity.

Read and extract information from lists, tables, diagrams and bar charts.

What is it like to learn with East Riding Adult Learning and Employability?

At East Riding Adult Learning and Employability we pride ourselves on the support we give to our learners, from the very first phone call, right through to achieving your learning aims and beyond to ensure that you have the skills, knowledge and resources you need to reach your goals.

When you enrol on your maths course, your tutor will work with you to give you advice on the best ways to develop your maths skills and which level of qualification you should work towards. They will discuss with you all of the support we have available and together you will plan out your learning journey.

All of our Maths support sessions and functional skills courses take place in small, friendly and welcoming classes, where you will have the opportunity to take part in activities to practice your skills independently and as part of a group.

You’ll have regular 1-1 time with your tutor to discuss your progress and identify opportunities for further development. Your tutor will work with you to make sure that you always have the support you need to achieve your learning aim and to give you information about other opportunities you can access, whether this is developing your maths or digital skills or exploring options that are relevant to your wider goals. They’ll make you aware of other resources you can access, such as employability programmes to help you to get the job you want, or one of our other courses that will support your creativity, health or wellbeing.

What do I need to join the course?

You don’t need to have any previous experience of studying maths, but you must be committed to attending the sessions and achieving your qualification.

What do I need to provide for the first session?

We recommend that you bring a notebook, a pen and a folder to keep your work together.

What could I do next?

When you’ve completed your learning, you will have the opportunity to discuss your next steps with our team. You might choose to continue improving your Maths by working towards the next level of qualification or moving on to a related subject, such as creative writing or poetry.

You might choose instead to develop your English or digital skills or to work towards a qualification in these areas.
