Maths GCSE

Whether you want to do a college course to give you the skills you need for your future career, study for a higher education qualification, progress to university, apply for a job or own your own business in the future, a good understanding of maths is essential. 

GCSE maths is widely recognised by employers as the qualification they look for when recruiting staff - in fact they often ask for a specific grade on job descriptions - so a good grade could be the difference between you getting the job over someone else.  

And, whilst a maths qualification demonstrates that you have an ability to calculate, it also shows that you have a high level of problem-solving skills, can analyse data, have good communication skills, can think logically and have good attention to detail. 

By studying GCSE maths you will not only improve your mathematical knowledge and skills but also learn how to apply a range of mathematical techniques in day-to-day situations that you may encounter at college or university, when working in your chosen career and in your social life too. 

Whilst you may not think you'll need to know about everything the course covers, lots of maths topics overlap so you may be surprised - and with the world becoming more and more digital and the reliance on computers and technology increasing every day there will be an even greater need for employees with effective mathematical skills.
