National 5 Maths Qualifications for Adult Learners

August till May
9 am till 12 noon


National 5 Maths is becoming increasingly sought after as a qualification for adults who have left school, in some case several years ago.  Most adults hold existing and often outdated qualifications such as Intermediate 2 or Standard Grades from their time in high school.  This can often create a barrier to career changes and progression, as National 5 Maths has become a very common entry requirement to an increasing number of college and university courses.

Demand for the SQA National 5 Maths Qualification among the adult population often exceeds the number of spaces available with college courses rapidly filling each year.

Saturday School is often the solution for adult learners who require the qualification yet do not have the option of completing a full-time weekday or evening course.  Completing your National 5 Maths Qualification with us allows adults to gain the award with minimum impact on their weekly, working life.  Classes are run on a part-time weekend basis on Saturday mornings.

Teachers who deliver this class are full time, fully qualified GTCS registered teachers who are currently delivering the N5 Maths course in Scottish schools or colleges.  The courses fee covers all taught classes, learning materials, textbooks, stationery, snacks and refreshments.  We also complete your registration with SQA for the all-important final exam.

Typical entrants to this course are often:

  • Looking to enhance their career prospects
  • Considering a career change
  • Prospective entrants into primary teaching (PGDE Primary)
  • Prospective entrants into secondary teaching (PGDE Secondary)
  • Looking to progress from HNC or HND courses into university degree courses
  • Applicants for nursing or midwifery courses
  • Prospective entrants into armed forces or emergency services
  • Simply looking to enhance their existing Maths and problem solving skills

This course is ITA enabled meaning you may qualify for financial support up to £200 towards your course fee.  See here for more information on this.
