Choose which date you would like to apply for:

Course Description:

The use of measures, charts and groups are part of everyday life and work. You will learn some introductory skills around:

  • being able to produce and understand how to read graphs which you might see in everyday situations
  • developing your skills and understanding around how to use the metric system for measuring length, weight, and capacity in real-life situations
  • understanding how to solve real-life problems using measure, time, and shape.   

This will improve your self-confidence and skills to work with measurement, showing data in charts and graphs. It will also help you to move on to a qualification which is recognised by colleges and employers.

The course will be delivered on a residential basis, over two days and one night.  The course will include a blend of class room based activities and some individual work alone.
