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 to 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 the 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.
