Maths, English, Science & Digital

Most maths and English courses are fully funded so there would be no charge to the school or the learner.

Our assessment team would agree the best starting point for the individual and provide the necessary support needed to achieve either a Functional Skill or GCSE Qualification.

Having staff who are confident in their maths, English and digital abilities supports not only their own career progression but also the quality of support that they provide to their pupils.

We also offer GCSE Biology and Physics qualifications that are suitable for those seeking a career as a Primary School Teacher and requiring a GCSE in Science.

Parent Ambassador training and volunteering programme

Our Parent Ambassador programme is designed to develop and enhance a school’s engagement with the local community.

This in turn benefits the school by developing communication links, building trust and also to encourage parents to engage and take advantage of volunteering opportunities within the school. Whether that be through reading with children, sharing a talent such as cooking, crafting, maths or English skills, helping with fundraising events or even enabling the school to make beneficial connections with local businesses.

This program has successfully helped schools to positively engage with the local community whilst raising awareness of support as well as valuable information and guidance that’s available for parents to develop their own skills.
