‘Progress’, is a part of ‘Building Better Opportunities’ - a programme funded by the European Social Fund and the Big Lottery Fund to tackle poverty and social exclusion faced by the most disadvantaged people in England.
English and Maths Functional Skills Delivery
We deliver weekly sessions, to a maximum of six learners at the following locations:
- CHESS centre (Camp Hill, Nuneaton)
- Rugby/Bedworth when numbers established
- Hatters Space (Nuneaton)
- Ratcliffe Centre (Atherstone)
- Young People First (Leamington Spa)
- Saltway Centre (Stratford-upon-Avon)
- The LEC (213, Walsgrave Road, Coventry CV2 4HH)
On average, learners engage in delivery for a maximum of 12 weeks, attendance is shown in the table below in italics. However, some learners may be ready to sit exams before this time and others wish to engage longer...
ALL EXAMS ARE TAKEN AT THE LEC
(Learners that miss an exam will be required to provide formal documentation explaining their absence)
Progress Course Referrals
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make a referral. We currently have the availablity shown in the table below. This table is updated at the end of every Monday and Thursday delivery day, including the waiting list.
Should a learner miss three weeks of delivery, they will be moved to the next space on the waiting list.
* 90 learners are funded until December 2018, this averages 3 referrals per month *
The aim is to provide learning opportunities at all geographical locations, it is NOT to have each provision filled
The referral process is as follows:
Referral partners email us
to request a 'BksB
' login as they believe they have a learner ready to engage in developing their English and Maths skills;
Referral partners arrange to visit the next available session to bring (a) learner (b) completed referral form (c) English and Maths BksB diagnostic print outs
Learners visit at the very beginning of the session with their mentor and have a 2-2-1 conversation before the other learners arrive: previous learning, risks etc., progression intentions ("warm handover");
- Learners leave and return the following week to start their formal learning.
End of Course Progression
Where a learner sucessfully completes a formal exam (qualification), they will be most welcome to attend to complete the level above, once they achieve 60% on their BksB diagnostic at that new level
