Reading, writing and maths

Haringey Learns offer a range of ways to help you improve your reading, writing, and numeracy skills.

Reading, writing and maths courses (Functional Skills)

These free courses are for adults who want to improve their maths or English. There are classes in numeracy (maths) and literacy (reading and writing). All these courses are for people who live permanently in the UK. You can join these courses and groups at any time during the year if places are available.

To apply for a Haringey Learns literacy or numeracy course, please fill in an enquiry form from one of our receptions or telephone 020 8489 2596/2523 for more details. We will assess your skills before offering you a place on one of our courses. This is to make sure the course you are enrolled on is right for you.

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

Haringey Learns provides flexible English courses at community venues in Haringey. The courses are for adults who live permanently in the UK, and who have UK and EU citizenship or leave to remain, or who are asylum seekers.

To apply for a Haringey Learns ESOL course, book onto an initial assessment waiting list at reception on the 2nd floor of Wood Green Central Library, High Road, Wood Green, N22 6XD. You will be invited by letter or email to attend an initial assessment to establish your level. There may be a long waiting list and therefore you may not be contacted immediately.
