Maths and English Skills

Beatles Story till
Many of us may not have  learned any maths or English since we were at school, which may have been some time ago!
 
But just like the geography or history we learned, maths and English skills fade, especially if you’re in a job where you don’t use them all the time..
 
However, when you suddenly find you need these skills, such as when you’re asked to do a report, or give someone a reference, then you might find your English isn’t as good as it might be.
Maths is the same -you might be on holiday trying to work out the local currency, or your children ask you for help with their homework, or you’re applying for a loan and want to work out the repayments.
 
We believe that brushing up your maths and English skills can have direct benefits to your job, your home life and to your confidence.
 
Colleges and other learning providers can help and in some cases this may be free, as the government is keen to support skills in these areas—so why not check it out today.
 

Functional Skills

There are also functional skills qualifications available, and Merseylearn has developed some materials especially for transport sector workers. 
These are available to use without restriction:
