Maths and English Skills – Qualifications

Whatever their age, whatever their job, a good understanding of basic maths and English skills is essential if your employees are to be productive and effective at work.

In the UK today, 1 in 6 adults do not have the literacy skills expected of an 11 year old and 1 in 2 adults do not have these levels of functional numeracy – this is costing companies thousands of pounds in wastage and lower productivity.

With learndirect you can help your employees improve their maths and English skills, boost their performance and your business productivity, with minimum disruption to the working day.

Our full trained staff will help you assess your employees’ skills gaps so that you can be sure they receive the training that is right for them and your business.

Man at computer Maths Courses

Our maths courses have been specially designed to help improve the number skills your staff use more often. They can brush up on the basics of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing or take a fresh look at more challenging number problems like percentages, fractions, decimals and measurements.

Woman at computer English Courses

We have a wide range of courses that will improve basic reading, writing and spelling skills. They’ll help your staff to feel more confident and comfortable using English in everyday work situations – like writing a business letter, filling out forms, speaking to customers or reading and understanding technical words and instructions.

Certificate Qualifications

Once your staff have completed their maths and English courses, they can go on to take a short test and when they pass, gain a nationally recognised qualification.
