Bespoke packages around English and maths to suit your company’s needs
Who is it aimed at?
Any employees who want to improve their skills. Reasons for undertaking the courses include: preparing for a skills test/performance test relating to promotion, wanting to get back into education after a long period away, wanting to improve English skills if English is not the first language and a desire to improve skills in general.
The courses also aim to meet government targets of increasing the English and maths skills of the population.
There are further benefits to participants outside of the workplace such as helping children with homework, passing entrance exams for college courses and improving confidence in life skills such as calculating bills and writing letters.
What do they cover?
Depending upon the length of the courses the following topics can be covered:
- Writing letters, emails and reports
- Reading skills
- Purpose of text
- Speaking and listening
- Basic operators
- Data handing and graphs
How long is each course?
For each component (English/maths) the recommended study time to complete all elements is 30 hours. Shorter courses can be put together with fewer elements and longer courses with either additional elements or more time on the elements above. We recommend no more than half a day’s delivery at one time to maximise learning potential.
Some workplaces choose to run these courses as ‘after work’ options for employees to study on work premises but outside of their regular work times.
