Level 3 Certificate in Core Maths
Core Maths is a new course designed for post-16 students who want to continue studying mathematics but not at A-Level. The new Core Maths qualifications will help you retain, deepen and extend your mathematics to be better prepared for higher education and employment.
Core Maths will help you understand and apply clear, mathematical reasoning to real-life problems, analyse and interpret data in various contexts and confidently deal with everyday financial maths. Most courses include a financial maths element helping you to understand the impact of interest rates on loans and investments.
These practical mathematical skills will also help you with your other A-Level subjects, in particular with sciences, geography, business studies, psychology and economics.
Universities have already come out in strong support of Core Maths qualifications. Even subjects like history now recognise the importance of statistics and problem solving skills learned studying Core Maths. Employers from different sectors are also firmly behind Core Maths qualifications. Many roles in today’s workplace require high levels of budget management and problem-solving skills; Core Maths will equip you with these skills.
Core Maths is typically undertaken by students that are a current study programme with Coventry College.
If you’d like to take this course and aren’t going to be doing it alongside a study programme, fees will apply.
