Maths and English are key elements of apprenticeship programmes and if you do not already have a GCSE at grade A*-C in these subjects you will be required to study Functional Skills at the appropriate levels.

Skills in Maths and English will support your apprenticeship programme, assisting you with assignment writing, research, job applications, presentations, managing your own finances and interpretation of data, to mention just a few. They will also help you in the future. Most employers are looking for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have Maths and English GCSEs at A*-C. This is why the development of Maths and English is so important, whatever your field of study.

How you will Learn
Underpinning knowledge will be acquired by attending taught sessions in the classroom and your assessor will offer support as you gain practical experience in the workplace.

How you will be Assessed
When you start the course you will be allocated an assessor who will carry out regular visits to your practice to observe you during surgery hours. Your assessor will also guide and support you in compiling your portfolio of evidence that you are reaching the required standards.
