GCSE Mathematics

GCSEs (General Certificates of Secondary Education)

New Directions College offers the opportunity to study and achieve GCSE qualifications to all of our adult learners over the age of 19. If you have not yet achieved a L2 qualification in Mathematics, and meet residency criteria, you will be able to study this free of charge.

We have two GCSE classes available, including one in the evening. The aim of the GCSE in Mathematics is to enable learners to:

  • develop fluent knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts
  • acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems
  • reason mathematically, make deductions and inferences, and draw conclusions
  • comprehend, interpret and communicate mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context.

You will study at New Directions South through blended learning sessions online and within the classroom. You will also be given access to a range of e-learning resources and assessment tools. GCSE classes begin in September and run through until May. Exams are usually taken throughout May and June. The results of GCSEs are released on the same day nationally.

Before you enrol, you will need to take an assessment. This is to determine this course is the right one for you.

Once you have submitted an application, one of our team will get in touch with you to organise an assessment. We can then advise you on available courses and your eligibility for discounted course fees. In the vast majority of cases, our Maths classes are free of charge under the Legal Entitlement to first full Level 2 Maths qualifications.

Starting: September 2021

Course fee: An assessment is required to determine your eligibility for funding. However, the vast majority of our learners are eligible for full funding and will not have to pay a fee.

Mathematics Functional Skills at Entry Level to L2

The new Functional Skills qualifications are intended for anyone wishing to develop their Mathematical skills. They focus on both the underpinning skills as well as the ability to apply Maths to different contexts.

Functional Skills qualifications are available across five levels (Entry 1 to Level 2), and can be completed in a wide range of college, community and work-based settings.

Before you enrol, we will work with you to assess your current level of skill. We will then provide you with advice and guidance about which course and level we believe is right for you. We are able to offer Maths classes in most of our venues, on different days and at different times. Please speak to us to identify the best option for you.

If you require help or support to study, please let us know. We will be able to provide additional learning support.
