English and maths for all

Solutions to equip your learners with the vital literacy and numeracy skills they need.

Engaging students who need to complete English and maths qualifications as part of their vocational study can be a challenge.

Whether it’s GCSE alternatives, short bespoke interventions, or something to bridge the gap between A level and university – we have the perfect solution with our Functional Skills, bite-sized English and maths and Core maths qualifications to ensure engagement, success and achievement for your learners.

What’s more, you can benefit from our knowledge and expertise with support from our dedicated Sector Specialist and Curriculum team, comprised of English and maths teachers with an abundance of knowledge and experience!


Learning isn’t one size fits all.

We live in a world that offers us more choice than ever before, so why can’t we apply this to basic qualifications and skills? Our research shows that 68% of people think that students should be given the option to take alternative exams other than GCSEs.
