Fircroft College of Adult Education | Birmingham, West Midlands

Take an online Literacy and/or Numeracy assessment


Who needs to take an assessment?

  • Everyone applying for an English or Maths course
  • Everyone applying for a course in the Skills for Further Study programme
  • All other applicants who have not yet undertaken an assessment are strongly recommended to do so.


We want to ensure that you are placed on a course that is suitable for your level, or that we can direct you to the correct provision if Fircroft College isn’t suitable for your learning needs at the moment.

What will happen?

The answers you give will allow us as a college to support your learning needs.  Please don’t be nervous or worried about completing the initial assessments as your answers are the correct answers for where you currently are as a learner. You will be given your score and level immediately - please make a note of this.

Ok, so what do I do?

There are two initial assessments to complete; one is LITERACY and one is NUMERACY.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Angela Brickley or you can call the college on 0121 472 0116.

Please note: completing the initial assessments does not mean that you are automatically accepted onto courses here at Fircroft College.

Finally, we wish you the best of luck on your learning journey!
