English and Maths
Free GCSEs for adults
English and maths GCSEs and Functional Skills courses are available to Adults aged 19 and over at our Basildon, Southend and Thurrock campuses. These courses are free if you don’t already have a grade 4/C in GCSE or Level 2 equivalent in English & Maths.
After applying you will be required to attend one of our adult diagnostic assessment events. Provided you have gained a Level 1 or 2 initial assessments and successfully complete the functional skills diagnostic at the appropriate level then you will be offered a place on the course. If you are unsuccessful, you will be offered an alternative course.
