We offer GCSE and Functional Skills courses in English and Maths.
What are Functional Skills courses?
Functional Skills courses in English and maths help thousands of people across Somerset every year to brush up on their reading, writing, spelling, speaking or numeracy skills. The courses lead to national qualifications and opportunities to progress into other training, which will improve your chances of getting a job or changing your career.
The courses are available all over the county, they are free and you do not need prior qualifications to apply.
