West Berkshire Training Consortium

About

West Berkshire Training Consortium can offer you the chance to get your English and maths functional skills (GCSE equivalent A – C or 4 – 9) for free.

Who can apply?

Anyone aged 19+, employed or unemployed is fully funded. Please note this is not an ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) or English Language course.

How is the course delivered?

You will attend one online session each week for up to 13 weeks. The sessions will be 90 minutes on Google Classroom and will be in a small group. Sessions will also be recorded so you can watch them in your own time and request support if needed.

How do I enrol?

You can call us or complete our enquiry form – see below for our contact details.

We’ll be able to give more detailed advice and guidance to make sure this is right for you, or if you’re ready to go we’ll enrol you straight away. If you plan to do this in ‘work time’ you will need the support of your employer. Remember this is fully funded so there is no cost to you as an applicant or to your employer.
