Employers Need ME – Maths and English

If you haven’t achieved a grade 4 or higher at GCSE in English and/or maths, you’ll study them as part of your study programme at CWA.

Over 75% of employers told the Government that they need you to have English and maths skills. 50% of employers said they dismiss job applications with spelling and grammatical errors without reading their content. Studies show people with poor maths skills are more than twice as likely to be unemployed than those with good maths skills. Employers need maths and English, so you need maths and English to be work-ready.
