Adult Basic Education

Improve your skills with Literacy, Numeracy and Digital Literacy courses starting in September, January and April.

Adult Basic Education - English, Maths and Digital Literacy

Studying a Literacy (Communication), Numeracy (Application of Number) or Digital Literacy course with Cardiff and Vale College could help you to:
• Gain a qualification (Essential Skills or Agored)
• Prepare for work or a further college course
• Improve everyday skills

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

Prior to enrolment you will be required to complete a WEST screener in order to determine your starting level and have a short interview, in order to place you in the class that is right for you.

The 10-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.


Options for September:
Either
An accredited Essential Skills qualification - specified study days at a college site (available on application).
OR
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)
