This suite of small awards covering the adult core curriculum is ideal for use with learners who may find Functional Skills or GCSE Maths too daunting, or who need address a skills gap in a specific area.

The Awards in Mathematics are available from Entry 1 to Level 2 and are structured to allow them to be used individually or to build to a Certificate in Mathematics; more complex concepts are introduced at higher levels.

Each unit covers a curriculum area or an aspect of a curriculum area and is a qualification in its own right and is also included in rules of combination for a certificate which covers all the curriculum areas.

The learning outcomes and assessment criteria reflect the national adult numeracy standards from Entry 1 to Level 2 and the qualifications cover:

  • understand and use mathematical information
  • calculate and manipulate mathematical information
  • interpret results and communicate mathematical information

The qualifications are assessed through a portfolio of evidence, to allow you to design the most appropriate assessment for your learners.
