Classes are available from Entry 1 to Level 2 and start in September, January and April.

The 11-week courses run for 6 hours a week and will be a blend of face to face online teaching and independent study. You are expected to commit to the full 6 hours.
An accredited Essential Skills qualification - specified study days at a college site (available on application).
An Agored unit where you will be able to study flexibly and will not be required to sit an exam. Suitable for learners who want to brush up on skills (please note this is not an Essential Skills qualification)
