Basic Skills – old

Basic skills are the key skills you need in study and in employment, and include Maths, English and employability skills.

You may hear them called Skills for Life. We also use these to learn other skills. You need them to:

  • Live on your own or look after your home
  • Get a job, and stay in employment
  • Look after your family and possessions.


What we do in our Basic Skills Program

We help to improve clients’ skills in English, Maths and computer usage. For many, returning to work or getting a job is their main aim, so alongside improving these areas, we also provide help with CV writing, form filling and interview skills. Our tutors will support you throughout the process of returning to work.

The length of a course is dependent on the client’s individual needs and the areas in which they are seeking to improve in.

If you would like to join a small group of others who are trying to improve their basic skills, please contact us.
