Adult Learning: Boost your Maths and English skills

Blog: How Could Improving Your Maths and English Help You?

18 August 2021

If you’ve ever been stumped by your child’s Maths or English schoolwork then try and take some comfort in the fact you’re definitely not the only one. Many parents over the last year of home-schooling have found themselves turning to Google, friends and family for support with their child’s homework and three questions devised for primary school kids in New Zealand even made the news

Unless your job role requires it, it’s not a necessity to be an expert in trigonometry, fronted adverbials or Pythagoras for everyday life, but having good Maths and English skills and a relevant qualification can be vital in helping you succeed in your education, career and everyday life.

Perhaps you are looking to build confidence and gain the core skills required for employment or further education, or you may be a parent who would like to improve your Maths or English skills to be able to better support your child’s learning during home-schooling. If you’ve been thinking about how to get a step closer to that dream job, or simply want to learn skills to make everyday tasks a bit easier – like organising your finances, or following a recipe – a Maths or English qualification could be perfect for you.
