For so long regarded as the fundamentals of a successful career path, English and maths are a challenge for many learners and GCSEs are not always within reach.

When looking for qualifications to address this need, Gateway Qualifications’ suite of bite-sized English and maths qualifications are ideal with their simplicity, clarity and flexibility.

This suite breaks the content of the curriculum down into small, coherent units with assessment that is flexible, robust and will help motivate learners to progress towards Functional Skills or GCSE. Learners take highly personalised progression routes and can study and complete units at their own pace – an approach that can transform outcomes.

Supporting teachers too

Supporting mixed ability teaching is high on our agenda as is the flexibility to embed the teaching of English and maths skills within other provision,  alongside the existing vocational curriculum.

Our approach to English and maths provides more learner support than simply re-sitting exams to  achieve Functional Skills / GCSE at Level 2. Learners take highly personalised progression routes and can study and complete units at their own pace – an  approach that can transform outcomes
