English and maths FREE courses

We offer FREE classes in English and maths from complete beginners right up to Level 2, including GCSE. All English and maths courses are FREE if you do not already have English or maths GCSE grade A-C and have lived in the United Kingdom or the European Economic Area (EEA) continuously for 3 years. GCSE courses start in September each year and are available daytime and evening.

These courses will provide you with the knowledge, skills and understanding that will enable you to operate confidently, effectively and independently in life and at work.

These classes run in the day time, evenings and Saturdays. English and maths courses start throughout the year. You can work towards an English and maths qualification which will:

  • Develop the skills required to get into work or get a better job
  • Be valued by employers and further education and support you to progress to higher level courses including GCSEs and vocational subjects
  • Help you to use your English and maths skills effectively in real life situations

To join an English or maths course with Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service, you will need to be interviewed and assessed so that the correct level of English or maths class can be determined for you, please call 020 8496 2974 for an appointment.

Once you have had your assessment, you will then be offered a course appropriate for your level of English or maths. At the time of your assessment, you will be able to discuss your attendance with the lecturer/assessor.

If you already have a certificate in either English or maths, please bring your certificate along to show to the lecturer. Please note that assessments and enrolment can take up to two hours.
