Developing English and Maths skills is central to all learning at NA College, striving to embed throughout all our delivery programmes as well as offering stand-alone Functional Skills Qualifications to those looking to further develop their skills. English and Maths are incorporated into our strategic aim to ensure that every individual can develop their skills and achieve recognised qualifications within these areas.
Within many job roles or future employment opportunities; English and maths qualiﬁcations are often a requirement; for most employment opportunities where expectations are that you can read, write and use numbers conﬁdently. If you do not already hold a grade C (grade 4-9 or equivalent qualification) in GCSE English or Maths, then you must continue to study these subjects as part of your learning programme.
This aim to hold Level 2 English or Maths qualifications is supported by government legislation and applies to all students, irrespective of where they study.
Achieving Level 2 in English will ensure that you have the necessary reading and writing skills and enable you to develop conﬁdence and effective communication skills. Accompanied by the same qualification in maths confirm that you can analyse data, solve problems and interpret complex situations, all transferrable skills no matter your chosen career path today or in future years.
Our friendly teachers are experts at breaking these subjects down, making them relevant to everyday life to help develop your understanding and building confidence. They use games, quizzes and online apps to make learning fun, engaging and bespoke to your learning journey within NA College.
