English and maths FREE courses for adults

These part-time courses help you improve your English and maths and gain a nationally recognised qualification – from beginners to GCSE.

Courses are available daytime and evening. 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 three years.

English and maths courses start in February and September. Before you enrol we need to assess your level of English or maths so we can tell you which course is best for you. Assessments will take at least one hour. Please do not bring young children with you as they may get bored and distract you or other learners.

For information and assessments for English and maths please call 020 8496 2974 to make an appointment.
