  • Entry requirements
    Entry requirements There are no formal entry requirements; but students must be able to work at entry level in both literacy and numeracy. However, students will be expected to demonstrate commitment to their studies and good attendance to classes. This course is generally appropriate for those aged over 19 years.
  • Course description
    General information

    The course is aimed at students who wish to:

        * Improve basic Maths (Numeracy), English (Literacy) and Computing (ICT) skills for everyday living
        * Go on to other further education courses
        * Improve employment prospects

    Classes are kept deliberately small to maximise individual attention to students’ needs. Group sizes are small, usually with a maximum of ten students. This ensures all students get the attention they need. Students work at their own pace. Groups work from Entry Level up to Level 2.

    Course content

    Students are able to gain the necessary skills to achieve a qualification at the appropriate level. The tuition is delivered in a small group environment, whilst at the same time students are expected to develop a positive and independent approach to study.

    Literacy: Written Communication, including Spelling Speaking and Listening Reading

    Numeracy: Number Skills (e.g. Addition, Multiplication, Subtraction) Measurement, Shape and Space (e.g. Money, Length, Area, Volume, Perimeter) Handling Data (e.g. Tables, Charts, Averages)

    Information Technology: Online Communication (Internet and Email) Word Processing (Creating letters and documents) Presentations (Creating computer slide shows) Spreadsheets and Graphs Databases

    Teaching and assessment

    Initial Assessment will be made to determine starting level. Assessment is ongoing throughout the programme. A Learning Plan will be drawn up and revised regularly. Assessments for Entry level Literacy and Numeracy and all ICT are held in class. Assessments for Levels one and two Literacy and Numeracy are usually held in the onscreen testing room. Once students are considered by the tutor to be in a position to pass an assessment, they will be entered.


    Return to Learn is regarded as a springboard on to other courses here at the college and is a good way for students to improve upon their employment prospects and their confidence.
