Essential English and Maths Skills for the Workplace

UCQ offer a range of training to improve English and/or Maths skills within the workplace.  Courses are fully funded and functional skills are delivered from Entry Level 3 to Level 2.  Employees can do either maths/English or both.

At the start of the programme employees undertake an initial assessment, followed by a diagnostic test, to identify areas requiring further development.  

We deliver using a range of workshops, 1-2-1 sessions and online support to prepare staff to take their functional skills assessment.  The delivery method can be customised to meet the needs of your organisation, shift patterns and company locations.

Upon successful completion employees will achieve an NCFE Functional Skills qualification at the appropriate level.

Throughout the course students will be supported by a dedicated tutor who will work with them to develop the necessary skills for successful completion. 

Employers will be provided with progress reviews to ensure you are kept up-to-date with employee progress, throughout their programme.

Contact our Business Development team today to discuss how we can help and support your business.
