Whichever future you want, English and maths are the keys to unlock it!

Whether you choose an academic route, vocational course or an apprenticeship, there are certain English and maths requirements for you to be considered for a place or interview.

Here at Telford College we can give you the skills to improve your English and maths, by following this route:

  • Interview: We will talk to you about your current skill levels
  • Assess: We will analyse your results and your career interests.
  • Recommend: We will recommend where in the new course levels you are and the most suitable qualification.

As an adult, you may find that you need to improve your results for English and maths, to make a career change or be able to apply for a job.  We run part time courses during the day or evening where you can study to get you GCSEs.

Throughout your journey to achieve your aspirations we will be here for you – you can talk to student services staff if you find that you want to be challenged more or need additional support.  Call 01952 642 237 to discuss your needs or come in to college and discuss your course with one of our advice and guidance specialists.

Geoff Humphries at the college Maths and English hubGeoffrey Humphries

"Maths and English GCSEs have been a constant stumbling block throughout my entire adult life.

Returning to education at the age of 37 was a must for me to be able to progress within any further education  or even whist climbing the corporate ladder."

Stevie Williams

"Re-taking my maths and English GCSEs was the start of my plan, from mum to student, with many career possibilities rolling around in my head.

As the time went on, I realised I love writing! I've always loved reading but writing suddenly took over and it's all I wanted to do."
