Fantastic resources

I am supporting schools and training providers in delivering functional skills and have just stumbled upon your brilliant website.

At the moment I just want to leave a comment saying how fantastic the resources are and thanking people for their generosity. In the future I hope I will be able to persuade teachers to upload and share their resources.

Wow, what a truly inspirational story (History of Skillsworkshop). I assumed it was owned by a large conglomerate in a similar way to Skillswise, etc.

I personally think it’s one of the most useful, invaluable resource banks available online.

Thank you!!!

Hugely appreciated

Thanks for the excellent service and downloadable resources, all are hugely appreciated.

The site helps takes the strain when I am looking for consistently good quality materials for my maths groups. The user friendliness of the site means I can even have a good chance of matching resources to individual learners in a timely manner.

I aim to upload some resources of my own in the future. Please carry on with the good work.

Wonderful job

Thanks Maggie,

It’s an absolutely wonderful job that you do. I hope that in the future I might be able to hand over some tried and tested resources for Functional Maths.

All the Essential Skills tutors in [Strode] college are of the same opinion. Even if we don’t just pick up a session quite as presented, the site is brimming with ideas, information and handouts that stimulate, inspire and save loads of time!

We are indebted to you and all those who contribute.

Kindest regards,
