Students studying free English and mathsPeople who want to improve their English and maths skills can take advantage of free courses at East Riding College.
Qualifications from a very basic level all the way up to GCSEs are available at no charge to help people who would like to work on their literacy and numeracy skills. They are on offer at the College’s Beverley and Bridlington campuses.

Rex Scott, English and maths curriculum leader, said: “These free courses are aimed at people who would like to improve their English and maths for any reason.
“It could be that you want to help your child with their homework but lack confidence in your abilities, or you might wish to strengthen your CV to help you get a job or promotion.”
He added: “We can help you decide which course is right for you and work with you to build your abilities from a lower level up to GCSE standard.
“For some people this can be the starting point on a voyage which can lead them all the way to degree level study.”

The English and maths skills courses can be started at any time of year but GSCEs begin in September. English and maths skills courses are free to all but GCSEs are not free for people who already have GCSE English or Maths at grades C and above.
