Good maths skills are essential in all areas of your daily life, whether at home, at work, in educational settings or in your social life
Whether you need to work out how much it'll cost to buy bus or train tickets, calculate how much your bills have gone up, or divide your annual salary to see how much you'll earn each month, you'll need maths skills to help you do it!
And if you need to check you've been charged the right amount in a shop, check your change, compare the costs of two different items, work out how much it'll cost to share a taxi home with a friend or calculate how many more followers you've got than them, you'll need maths skills to do that too!
In the workplace, employers will be looking for strong maths skills as they'll want to be confident that you'll order the right amount of supplies, use the right amount of materials for the job and charge customers the right amount for the service they receive.
But maths isn't just about addition (adding), subtracting (taking away), multiplying (times-ing) or dividing (sharing out) - you can use maths skills to analyse data, investigate statistics, measure shapes and spaces, work out ratios, percentages, proportions and fractions, and use formulae to work out more complex calculations.
What's more, studying maths doesn't have to be boring like it was in school - you will learn in a practical way, applying your skills to a range of scenarios that you will encounter on a day-to-day basis and will work take part in group discussions, presentations and activities to enable you to continually use and improve your skills and confidence throughout the duration of the course.
Also, did you know, that if you don't have maths at GCSE grade C/4 you can study this course for free?
