Brighton Metropolitan College (MET)
Brighton MET offers a variety of free activities to support the local community.
1 + 1 = success
This is personalised support which identifies specific knowledge gaps, problem-solving methodologies and exam techniques allowing you to create your own personalized revision resources. You will learn memorable step-by-step processes to help with revision and recall. All with the use of technology and VR. We aim to give you more confidence to progress onto a formal functional skills qualification.
Multiply the possibilities
A numeracy group workshop designed for those who chose to study one of the Opening Doors vocational courses, and whose numeracy and digital skills are holding them back from a career change, achievement of qualification and progression. You will gain basic numeracy and business awareness, use Excel and work with data, all with the use of technology and VR. We aim to give you more confidence and equip you with the skills to get that desired, employer-endorsed qualification.
Count on me
A financial wellbeing workshop supporting local residents in numeracy and financial management. The purpose is to educate and raise capability about financial matters, to encourage money conversations and to know how to seek information to make informed choices.
You will learn how to:
- compare energy tariffs
- find suitable mobile phone deals and Wi-Fi contracts
- understand your payslip and tax
- improve budgeting, planning and managing family income.
We aim to improve your confidence and teach you how to manage money effectively. With the rise of inflation and the cost-of-living crisis, improving your numeracy skills will allow you to identify the best deals, manage income constructively and avoid debt.
Lunchtime Maths Club for ESOL students
To further support ESOL residents in the community, the Club will enable students understand and use the language of Maths through engaging games and fun=based activities. The resources used will vary from board games to VR sets. We aim to improve your confidence with numbers and communication, promote financial and social wellbeing and encourage participation. Long term the aim is for the learners to progress onto more formal numeracy qualifications and other Opening Doors courses at Brighton MET.
