Level 2

Mathematics GCSE Foundation


This course is an opportunity to develop your skills in the use and application of mathematics. This will be an important step towards enhancing your employability and to support further study in a large range of subjects.

The course is specifically designed for people needing to improve their grade in GCSE mathematics. You will have opportunity to be placed in a learning environment which introduces you to the key skills needed in the exams. You will then be able to develop these skills over a longer period of time.

GCSE Mathematics covers number, algebra, ratio and proportion, geometry, statistics and probability. The new GCSE exam also has an enhanced emphasis on problem solving. This course will cover the same topics but will give you the opportunity to develop skills at your own pace.

A range of teaching styles will be used including group and individual work, class discussion, investigative work and solving problems individually or in groups. We try to make lessons different from the GCSE Mathematics lessons you had at school.


Many career, apprenticeship and higher education entry requirements require a grade 4 (or grade C) or above in Mathematics and this course will help you to progress towards this achievement.
