English & Maths - MK College


English & Maths

Improving your Maths and English skills is a great way to prepare to further your studies or kick off your career.

Our Adult English courses develop the skills required to read, write, speak, listen and communicate at an appropriate level. You will learn to apply these skills effectively to a range of purposes in the workplace and in other real-life situations.

Our Adult Maths courses teach the underpinning skills and basics of mathematics at an appropriate level. You will learn to apply mathematical thinking to solve problems in familiar situations.

You will learn in a class of fellow adults with similar skills, and in similar situations, to you. You will learn from professional, experienced tutors and have access to our facilities, including libraries and learning resources.

Please note: All classes will take place at Chaffron Way campus.


How do I apply?

Select your chosen course, and then click ‘Apply’ at the top of the page. You will then be taken through a selection of compulsory forms to complete.

Hybrid Learning

Hybrid classes are held online using Microsoft Teams. Classes take place at the same time each week and require you to be logged in with your tutor, available and responsive, for the full class duration.

Hybrid courses cannot be studied independently or ‘caught up’ at your own pace. Onsite (on campus at Chaffron Way) attendance is required for the first week and then roughly once every six weeks, for assessments and tutor time. All exams are also onsite. You will be given onsite dates at the start of your course. If you are offered a place on a Hybrid course, you will need your own working laptop or desktop computer with a microphone and camera.

You will also need a reliable internet connection at home. Some people struggle with Hybrid learning and are confused about how the classes run.

A solid standard of digital literacy and established study skills are required before starting Hybrid learning. If Hybrid learning is not a good fit for you, onsite classroom-based classes offer more tutor support.

Please contact us if you have any questions about our Hybrid courses in Adult English and Maths
