Essential Skills

FREE Courses in ICT, English and Maths

Have you struggled with Maths or English or do you want to improve your computer skills? If this sounds like you, Belfast Met's Essential Skills courses in English, Maths or ICT are for you and best of all, they are FREE!

Classes are delivered at all main College campuses, as well as venues throughout the community and in the workplace through the day and in the evening. Classes in English and Maths are available from Entry Level through to Level 2 (achievement at Level 2 is comparable to GCSE standard).

Classes in ICT are available at Level 1 and Level 2 but for those of you who are less confident in this area you are sure to find something suitable through our ICT for Beginners (Steps 1 and 2) accredited programmes which will assist you in taking those first steps with emails, searching the Internet, creating documents in Microsoft Word and setting up spreadsheets.

In order to ensure that you are enrolled on the best course to suit your needs all potential students are required to attend an advice and enrolment session prior to course entry.  An experienced Essential Skills Tutor will be available to assist you in making the right decision and to give guidance on course options. 

Advice sessions for courses commencing in the 2018/2019 academic year will take place at the College's Millfield site, days and times below.  So take the first step and come along to one of our sessions.

We look forward to meeting with you.

HALLOWEEN LITERACY, NUMERACY & ICT FAST TRACK

Monday 29th October - Friday 2nd November 2018

We hope to run one week fast-track courses for Literacy, Numeracy and ICT during the Halloween mid-term break (29th October - 2nd November 2018), providing enrolment numbers are viable.  These courses will run for one full week, Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.30pm each day at our Millfield site.  Students wanting to enrol must attend a Diagnostic Assessment in their chosen subject to determine that they are working towards Level 2.  We are also offering you the opportunity to attend a preparation session to help you prepare for the Diagnostic Assessment.
