Essential Skills Courses

Enrol NOW! on one of our Essential Skills Courses:

Do you want to improve your reading, writing maths or ICT skill, or know someone who needs help with these essential skills?

If you are over the age of 16 an Essential Skills course may help you to get on at home, work or in life. We all have little things in our lives that we would like to change,  but sometimes it is can be hard to know how to ask for help.  At South West College we offer friendly and supportive learning services for people experiencing difficulties with reading, writing, maths or computing.

We are here to help, so come along to your local South West College Campus Information Session on:

Tuesday 5th September from 6.30 – 8.30pm. 

For further information telephone 0845 603 1881, log on to swc.ac.uk or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.


Why Essential Skills are important.

Essential Skills courses can be really life changing. They have helped people to:

  • Read a newspaper for the first time to find out what is happening in their community
  • Fill in an application form and get a job
  • As a result read notes from their children’s school help their children with their homework
  • For the first time use the internet to keep in touch with family and friends
