Free English and maths courses from Buckinghamshire Adult Learning

Do you need to improve your English or maths skills? Do you need a qualification?

There are now free part-time courses available in English and maths with Buckinghamshire Adult Learning and their experienced team of highly qualified and friendly tutors.

There are day-time or evening courses available to anyone who lives in Buckinghamshire. The courses are mostly free of charge and are based at centres in Aylesbury, High Wycombe and Chesham and online.

The learners work towards a nationally recognised Functional Skills qualification at Entry level, Level 1 or Level 2. A Functional Skills qualification in English and/or maths may help them to progress in their career or to go to college for further study.

Teresa Meredith, Skills Manager at Buckinghamshire Adult Learning, said, “There is no better time to gain some new skills or a new qualification. Our English and maths teams have worked incredibly hard over the summer to create Covid-19 friendly learning environments in our centres and to build online learning platforms. I would urge anyone interested to visit our website at or telephone us on 01296 674463. We welcome new learners all the time”.

Buckinghamshire Adult Learning offers a free and confidential pre-course assessment to all learners before they begin. This ensures that each learner is learning at the correct level.

Nick Andrews, an English tutor, reinforced this message: “We not only teach the subject in an accessible way as possible, we also develop ‘learning confidence’ in our classrooms. It can be the case that learners feel nervous about re-entering education; some learners had mixed experiences at school and feel the need to ‘start again’. It’s our job to help them do that in a fun and supportive environment.”

There is little doubt that many learners have gained from these courses over the years including one learner who obtained her Functional skills English qualification at a recent summer school. She wrote in to say, “It all worked out really well and I have now been offered a place on my midwifery course. I am so happy. Thank you all so much for your massive help. Without you I would not be a student now or a midwife in the future!”
