    What our learners have to say:

    Eve was aware that she would have to do Level 2 maths as part of the Apprenticeship programme.  Maths was always a problem for Eve in school.  She struggled with many aspects of maths and this affected her overall maths confidence.


    “I feel like I have learned a lot because of how it was explained and how its shown in a different form. I thought I couldn’t do maths but it just wasn’t explained in the right way to me.  

    I have really enjoyed working with Viv, although I have only spent a couple of weeks, she has shown me subjects that I never thought I could do and shown me other ways around them and now I feel more confident with maths.”
