Unlock Your Potential with Maths & English Functional Skills Courses this September

We are delighted to announce that Wandsworth Council Lifelong Learning is offering maths and English Functional Skills courses for adults, starting in September 2023.

A sound knowledge of maths and English provides us with the necessary knowledge to succeed in life and work. Applying these skills in everyday life helps us to connect with others, solve problems and develop personally and professionally.

Upgrade Your Functional Skills with Maths & English Courses

Functional skills open up a world of opportunities. This isn’t just about brushing up on your fractions or understanding sentence structure more clearly – it’s about transforming your life and applying the knowledge you gain in everyday situations, giving you the confidence and ability to thrive..

These courses can open doors to new jobs, promotion at work, or even enable you to help your children with their schoolwork. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to positively impact your life.

Don’t Take Our Word for It

A former Functional Skills maths learner with WCLL, Jayne. G, was happy to tell us that:

“Maths affects every aspect of my life. I couldn’t do simple mathematics before this course. Imagine how much that has impacted and embarrassed me throughout my life. Not being able to count the right change or get the right measurements as being nothing short of  exasperation.”

She went on to say:

“Now that I am comfortable with the basics, I can actually tell the difference between miles, kilometres, yards, metres and centimetres. I don’t use a calculator as much anymore.”

Jayne was very impressed by the quality of teaching she received and said of her tutor:

“She worked with my anxiety, reframed my view on maths, pinpointed where my anxiety was stemming from and explained different ways in which I can tackle maths in the simplest, most effective way and not to be bogged down by complicated formulas. That was the game-changer for me. I stopped being intimidated by maths because of  my tutor.”
