Initial Assessment for Functional Skills Maths Courses
The Initial Assessment is a 1-1 meeting with a maths tutor, which will be conducted online using Zoom (a video call). You will be emailed an invitation to the meeting the day before and you will just need to use the link and follow some simple instructions to join the tutor in the call.
The assessment will last a maximum of 30 minutes. The tutor will spend some time talking with you about how you use maths in your life and why you want to improve your skills. You will then do a short maths assessment. This will be mainly done through talking about the maths and may cover topics such as subtraction, times tables, rounding, word problems.
If suitable, the tutor will then offer you a place on one of our courses:
• a 5 week course for learners who need some revision of the basics of maths. The tutor will teach a small group via Zoom with lots of online follow up activities.
• an online course for learners who are more confident with the basics and are ready to work on topics such as percentages, ratio, area, averages. Learners will work individually, with a tutor available by Zoom/email/text to answer queries.
