English and maths are essential skills for work and life. 

English as a first language

If English is your first language, but you don’t already hold an English GCSE grade 4 (C), you can study GCSE and Functional Skills courses for free.

Study for your maths GCSE or Functional Skills for free if you don’t already hold a Maths GCSE grade 4 (C). Want to improve your basic computer skills? Our Functional Skills ICT courses may be free depending on your circumstances. 

English language for non-native speakers
