Basic Skills

Most jobs require applicants to have basic literacy and numeracy skills, with some asking for English and Mathematics at GCSE level. By improving your literacy and numeracy, and gaining qualifications in these at any level, you will significantly improve your chances of getting a job.

The good news is there are lots of ways you can improve your literacy and numeracy skills and gain qualifications in these, and many of the courses are free. At The Advice Centre we can do free initial assessments to check  your current ability levels in English and Mathematics, and also help you find suitable courses and opportunities to improve your skills and to gain qualifications in these essential subjects.
