Boost Your Career Opportunities


Improving maths , English and ICT is proven to boost career opportunities. There are currently hundreds of thousands of people in England currently taking advantage of free courses. Most people don’t even know where to start.  

Skills For Life


Gateshead Council learningskills have funding to help support and improve your maths, English and ICT skills. Most people want to aim to achieve a level 2 qualification, which is equivalent to a GCSE C grade or a 4 in the current grading.


Before you do anything, you would need to complete a 25-minute assessment per chosen subject to see what your current skills are. For example, you could be working at a very high level and just need some brief support. The assessment will tell us exactly what your current level is and how long it can take to get you to level 2.


Your initial assessment is FREE and can be completed at any of our learning centres or online.
