• Do you want to support your child’s learning?
• Did you miss out when you were at school?
• Are you confused by some of the new teaching methods your child’s school uses?

Then this short course is for you!

In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.

An introduction to the maths curriculum taught in school. It supports children's learning both in and out of school and boosts self-confidence in the subject. Terminology used in school is explored and help and guidance is given so that learners feel comfortable with the subject matter.

The course aims to familiarise adults with a range of new calculation methods and mental maths strategies currently used to teach maths in primary schools. It aims to help adults feel confident in supporting their children’s learning in maths whilst providing an opportunity to brush up their own skills. It can be used as the first step toward a longer maths course with accreditation at the end.

The content will look at new methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division taught in schools. There is an opportunity to discover hints and tips to help learn times tables.

Please note there will be no teaching sessions on: 27/10/2021

Courses can fill fast, so please enrol early to avoid disappointment. Decisions on whether a course is to run are made two weeks prior to the start date - an email will be sent to you should there be changes to your course or if it is cancelled. Please check your inbox leading up to your course, including the junk folders. For anyone without an email account, our Admissions team will phone you instead.

For the first week of the course you will need to bring a valid form of identification; this includes passport, driving licence, debit/credit card, Birth Certificate or National Insurance card.

Please note - you should be 19 years old or over at 31st August 2021 prior to starting the course.
Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can find more information on our Fees and Bursaries page - search "Fees and Bursaries" at the top of the page.
