Our learner Niquita Mace shares with us how attending our Essential Skills English and Math’s courses has helped her continue onto further education. . .

Niquita says, “After being told about Adult Learning Wales in Cardiff University where I completed my Access to Healthcare, higher education certification course, I decided to look at the courses on offer at Adult Learning Wales and see if there were any that could help me. The reason behind me doing these courses is to help me start further education and I needed English and Math’s to progress. 

I learnt a lot whilst doing these courses. Being a mature student, I had forgotten a lot from school days but the patience I received has served me well. All the tutors have worked so hard and helped so much!” 

The Essential Skills English and Math’s courses are the first stage to a Level 2 qualification that is accepted by the vast majority of Colleges and Universities in Wales as an equivalent to GCSE A-C grade in Mathematics or English Language.

There is a period of self-study taking you to level 2, and then a tutor led on-line class to prepare you for the end of course supervised assessments and exams.

Niquita continues, “I would recommend both courses to anyone who is looking to go on to further study. The advice and support you are given does help and I’m happy that I have achieved the grades I was given. Hard work does pay off!

I want to thank Adult Learning Wales and my tutors: Sian, Jim, Amanda, Tina, and Debbie. These people have been very supportive and helpful while studying, and the advice I have been given will take with me into future studies.” 

We would like to congratulate Niquita on completing her courses and wish her well with her future studies!
