FREE Maths, English and IT skills courses

FREE Maths, English and IT skills courses

For all those students without a level 2 (such as a GCSE (A-C) or equivalent) qualification in Maths and English, there’s another way to achieve them!

EThames, like many universities around the UK, require students wishing to study for a Higher Education qualification to have at least a grade C in GCSE English and GCSE Maths before they can gain admission. Many companies also ask for the same qualifications, as it demonstrates your employability. Some Institutions will only accept GCSE or IELTS qualifications, whilst others accept various Level 2 Literacy or Numeracy qualifications.

FE Colleges, Learndirect and many other providers offer *FREE, nationally recognised Maths and English qualifications to help you get admission to a Higher Education course, get work and make life easier at home.

For example, Learndirect have 450+ locations around the UK, including 5 within 10 miles of our College at Gants Hill.

*You’re eligible for FREE courses if:

  • Aged 19+ on or before August 31st
  • A resident of the European Union for three years or more
  • In receipt of benefits (such as JSA, ESA or Income Support)
