Who is it for?
For any parent or carer who would love to help their child with maths but feels unsure about how to go about it, this course is designed to empower you in supporting your children’s learning, making it easier to help them with their GCSE homework.
No entry requirements are necessary. If you are aged 19 or over, live in Shropshire, and don’t have a GCSE in maths (or equivalent), then you would be eligible.
What does the course involve?
The course will include an overview of the key maths topics and methods used at secondary level:
- Place value
- Prime factors
- Adding and subtracting fractions
- Multiplication and division of fractions
- Speed, distance and time
How is the course assessed?
There are no exams or tests. Our aim is to make sure you are equipped with the knowledge to meet and understand the requirements of the GCSE maths curriculum so during the sessions your tutor will assess your work and provide feedback. There is also an option to complete additional topics at home online with our tailored software package, but this is not a compulsory element to the course.
How much does it cost?
If you are aged 19 or over, live in Shropshire and don’t have a GCSE in maths (or equivalent) this course is free to you.
Please bring a notebook and pen – we’ll provide the rest.
On completion, if you would like to go to the next level, you could enrol on a GCSE maths programme at the college.
